The Environmental Public Health Online Courses (EPHOC) training program has been developed specifically for you – the most important frontline environmental health professional. This program will not only give you the knowledge and application of the basic subjects needed in your environmental health practice, but also expose you to the broader field, as well as introduce some of the newest concepts that will shape the future of how environmental health will be protecting our communities and our world.
The fifteen EPHOC courses are taught by a group of environmental public health subject matter experts from across the country. The instructor group is a mix of academic professors and environmental health practitioners in several different agency settings. Course content includes the various roles and responsibilities of environmental public health staff in the over 45 hours of online training provided. The courses can be taken individually on demand. They have been divided into multiple 40 to 60 minute modules for each course. Successful completion of the course content and the post test will allow online students to print out a course certificate. NEHA members can submit the certificate for pre-approved continuing education hour credits toward credential maintenance.
EPHOC training programs are designed for:
• New hire environmental public health professional and in-service refresher training
• Individuals preparing for a state or national credential exam
• Environmental health and related-discipline students
• Environmental public health professionals wanting to improve their technical knowledge or receive continuing education hours
