Training Overview

The purpose of this webinar session is to provide public health professionals and their partners with an initial working knowledge of the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) capability update initiative for emergency preparedness and response and how it applies in practice.  This webinar may be of particular interest to those working in preparedness and response from multiple sectors and roles including state and local governmental public health, academia, health care, communications, responders, and community agencies. The capabilities are national standards that are cross-cutting among public health priority topics to support the full preparedness cycle. The capabilities provide a planning framework, help define roles, offer tools for stakeholder collaboration, suggest consistent terminology, and consider evaluation planning. 

The course contains two modules: a content module and a resources and evaluation module. After accessing both modules, learners will earn a certificate of completion. When the certificate is available, learners will see a Certificate button on their dashboard.

This recording is approximately 90 minutes. There are no prerequisites. Participants will need a broadband internet connection (Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox are preferred browsers) and computer speakers. For technical support, please contact
