Great format to the training. I think the bi-directional video made a much more engaging conversation. No one was at the training just to be there, and that was so nice to be a part of a group that was actually there to participate. This training is incredibly beneficial to people in rural areas like Durango, where there are very limited access to training like this!
CPHA Workforce Development Project
In 2015-2016, the Colorado Public Health Association received funding from the American Public Health Association and the Colorado Gaining Ground Initiative to implement a 7-month project to assist 3 Local Public Health Departments to tailor their workforce development plans to meet the Public Health Accreditation Board’s (PHAB) requirements for accreditation.
The Colorado Public Health Association worked with the Colorado School of Public Health and the Rocky Mountain Public Health Training Center to select, train and fund 3 Masters of Public Health students to support the 3 local public health agencies in creating their workforce development plans.
Students and local public health agencies were paired for 4 months to work on this project. At the conclusion of the project they shared their impressions and lessons-learned. Watch the videos here.
