Basic Epidemiology Training Packages

These training packages developed by the North Carolina Institute for Public Health are designed to be used as a face-to-face training tool for trainers. The packages include materials such as PowerPoint™ presentations with detailed speaker’s notes and guided discussion questions with suggested answers. The materials can be completed in a series of 1 to 1.5 hour sessions or combined into a full- or half-day training. Alternatively, these trainings can be used for individual computer-based self study.
