Structured around the Kirkpatrick model for evaluating training
, the knowledge repository includes training evaluation templates and guides organized by the four Kirkpatrick training evaluation levels; course and exercise materials; and links to other PERLC-developed toolkits, guides, and resources. These tools and resources are intended to provide support for the emergency preparedness and response workforce, including organizations, institutions, and programs, interested in improving and measuring the impact of their emergency preparedness and response learning products, but may also be useful to anyone engaging in training evaluation.
The development of quality, competency-based training is further supported by the Council on Linkages’ Core Competencies for Public Health Professionals
(Core Competencies), a consensus set of foundational skills for all who are engaged in the field of public health, and access to training is facilitated by TRAIN
, a national learning network for training professionals who protect and improve the public’s health. TRAIN offers thousands of courses from nearly 4,000 providers. Evaluating Emergency Preparedness and Response Trainings: A Knowledge Repository
and the Guide to Improving and Measuring the Impact of Training
are both accessible through TRAIN’s Resources section, and the Core Competencies, Public Health Preparedness and Response Core Competencies
, and Public Health Preparedness Capabilities
are integrated into TRAIN to enable learners to search for courses that will help build these skills.
These and numerous other resources related to workforce development, quality improvement, and performance management are available through the PHF website
