R6-SCPHTC to remain partners with Alabama, Mississippi

Although the Region 6 South Central Public Health Training Center has a new region of focus, we will continue our collaboration with Mississippi and Alabama. We are excited to continue to work with our colleagues at the Mississippi State Department of Health and the University of Alabama at Birmingham.

We're Upgrading!

In an effort to make our learning management system more user-friendly, we have started to convert our older, Java-based courses into a new, pop-up free format. The process is expected to be completed in early January 2016.

As a result of this upgrade, some courses may be temporarily unavailable starting in January 2016. We are dedicated to completing this conversion process as quickly as possible, and we appreciate your patience with the upgrade.

For a preview of the new, pop-up free course format, consider enrolling in the following courses:
Featured Courses

Cultural Competence in Emergencies

Since human beings were created, they have evolved socially, linguistically, economically, and more. Hence, in emergencies, so much is at stake that emergency responders must constantly augment their knowledge, skills, and abilities for working with individuals, groups, and communities in cross-cultural contexts. In this course, emergency responders will gain understanding of their impact on clients when providing public health and medical services. Primary topics discussed include demographic changes in the United States and Louisiana; cultural competence and its related models; and strategies for determining and increasing cultural competence in emergencies.

Transportation Triage during Emergencies

This Transportation Triage web-based course is designed to explain the concept and operational procedures for en-route Transportation Triage during emergencies. A scenario with timelines will be presented as well as a virtual demonstration of the process. Learn More
