Mix of Training Modalities Still the Norm

The New England Public Health Training Center just finished its annual performance reporting to the Health Resources and Services Administration for the time period July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018. In total, 290 titles were offered, with self-paced being the most common training modality, but classroom training is still highly sought after by training clients and partners, especially for complex public health topics.

“NEPHTC is pleased that we can use a creative range of training options to both give access to training content, and also to train on complex topics,” says Karla Todd, NEPHTC Program Manager. “A mix is often what is needed. Sometimes live training is the only way to get peers to open up and share nuances or strategies. Nonetheless, online training is essential to reach rural audiences or to get basic awareness in a short amount of time.”
