Training Overview

R4PHTC Trainings

The Region IV PHTC offers competency-based trainings for public health professionals throughout the region and nation.  Most trainings are free and may offer continuing professional education credits. PHTC’s trainings for professionals consist of the following types of activities:

  • Webinars (live and archived):  These presentations are designed to introduce content areas and skills to the participants in shorter, web-based formats.
  • Interactive Lectures (includes satellite, archived, and in-person):  These lectures are designed to introduce content areas and skills to the participants. These lectures provide ample opportunity for interaction with the presenter.
  • Skill-Based Trainings (virtual and in-person):  These skill-based trainings are in-depth opportunities for the learner to develop needed priority skills and will typically be offered in sessions from 3–6 hours.
