The WRPHTC has developed the Public Health Core Competency Self-assessment and Training Preferences Survey (PHCCSTPS) 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.
The PHCCSTPS has two sections. The first asks respondents to identify training interests and preferences. The second asks respondents to self-assess their level of competence on the eight public health core competency domains developed by the Council on Linkages. Here is a link to an example survey instrument.
There are no costs to health departments in HRSA Region 9 (Arizona, Nevada, California, Hawaii, and USAPI). Minimal costs for departments outside of Region 9.
Thus far, more than 2,500 public health employees at 17 public health departments in multiple states have completed the Public Health Core Competency Self-assessment and Training Preferences Survey.
