Now that you’re certified, how do you stay certified?
Throughout the year, many public health associations offer conferences for professionals and students. These conferences may be held in-person, or they may also be in a virtual or hybrid format. Conferences offer sessions on different topics relevant to public health and give attendees the opportunity to earn continuing education (CE) and/or CHES credits as well as network with other public health professionals. Here are links to a few different Utah public health associations as well as national resources:
Region 8 Rocky Mountain Public Health Training Center (free for Utahns)
Regional Public Health Training Centers provide specialized training via CEUs for both public health students and professionals. These centers are located at top universities throughout the United States and are divided based on ten geographical regions. Their focus is on expanding managerial, scientific, and technical competencies of public health professionals by making trainings relevant and accessible. These trainings are low-cost and can be used to obtain continuing education credits no matter where you live.
