“In collaboration with the Western Region Public Health Training Center, the NVPHTC implements a Public Health Core Competency Self-Assessment and Training Preferences Survey (PHCCSTPS) to local health departments. This assessment is used as an online tool for assessing the skill sets and identifying the training needs of public health workers, and for supporting the workforce-development plans required for public health department accreditation. Nevada conducted the first assessment in 2015 and is implementing a follow up in early 2019.”
