Proposed Project: Application for Training (OMB No. 0920-0017)—Revision—The Public Health Practice Program Office (PHPPO), in conjunction with the Public Health Training, offers self-study, computer-based training, satellite broadcasts, video courses, web-casts, instructor-led field courses, and lab courses related to public health professionals worldwide. Employees of hospitals, universities, medical centers, laboratories, state and federal agencies, and state and local health departments apply for training in an effort to learn up-to-date public health procedures. The “Application for Training” forms are the official applications used for all training activities conducted by the CDC. The Continuing Education (CE) Program includes CDC's accreditation to provide Continuing Medical Education (CME), Continuing Nurse Education (CNE), Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES), and Continuing Education Unit (CEU) for almost all training activities. The only cost to the respondent is the time involved to complete the application.
