Distance Learning

Distance learning provides the unique ability to deliver instruction and training to individuals in their home, office or classroom when face-to-face interaction is not possible.

Through the Public Health Training Network (developed by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention), and the Satellite Training Partners Network (developed as part of the Arizona Health Alert Network), public health workers can access training opportunities via satellite videoconferencing without the expense of extensive travel or costly conference registration fees.

Many Public Health Training Network-sponsored satellite videoconferences offer Continuing Education Units (CEU's) free or for a minimal processing fee.

Satellite Videoconferencing

A one-way videoconference delivered to multiple sites via satellite that includes a video-based, in-depth presentation by subject matter experts with an opportunity for the audience to fax or call in questions and receive live responses.

For information on satellite broadcasts, contact the Bureau of Public Health Emergency Preparedness at (602) 364-3289.
