Proposed Project Back to Top

Application for Training (OMB No. 0920-0017 Exp. 3/31/2010)—Extension—Office of Workforce and Career Development (OWCD), Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

Background and Brief Description

OWCD requests an additional three years to continue CDC's and the Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry's (ATSDR's) use of the training application forms 32.1 and 36.5 (50,000 students × 5 minutes for form 32.1, and 24,000 students × 5 minutes for form 36.5). These instruments have served and are proposed to continue serving as official training applications forms used for training activities conducted by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

CDC offers public health training activities to professionals worldwide. Employees of hospitals, universities, medical centers, laboratories, State and Federal agencies, and State and local health departments apply for training to learn up-to-date public health practices. CDC's training activities include laboratory training, classroom study, online training, and distance learning.

CDC uses training application forms to collect information necessary to manage and conduct training pertinent to the agency's mission. This information allows CDC to send confirmation of registration to participants, provide certificates of attendance or continuing education credits as proof of participants' attendance, and generate management reports to identify training needs, design courses, select location for courses, and evaluate programs.

Since the previous approval, there have been no changes to the information collection instruments; however, the number of annual responses has increased, simultaneously increasing burden hours.

There are no costs to the respondents other than their time. The total estimated annualized burden is 6,167 hours.
