Learning Objectives: Describe the Tobacco and Technical Assistance Consortium’s (TTAC) CD-ROM basic training program for new employees and grantees. Illustrate increased knowledge of the practice of tobacco control in order to implement a basic training program in their state or local organization. Conduct an assessment of the competencies of their organization and determine where technical assistance is needed.
New/limited experience tobacco control program managers and health education specialists at the state and local levels, consultants and trainers who are responsible for tobacco control programs.
· New state and local employees and grantees will receive an orientation to the science and practice of tobacco control.
· TTAC’s new CD-ROM, the basis of the workshop, increases the accessibility and consistency of basic training for new employees and grantees.
· Workshop facilitators will train the audience on how to use the program for their self-development.
· Training module includes a self-assessment of competencies for state and local organizations to build more effective programs.
The audience will walk through the steps of the CD-ROM training module and the self-assessment tool, increasing their knowledge and learning how they can be implemented at the state and local levels. Participants will have the opportunity for hands-on involvement in the learning process and will take home the CD-ROM and other materials.
A new resource is available for tobacco control programs with a need to improve the knowledge and skills of new employees and grantees. Additionally, through an assessment of competencies, organizations can identify their needs for technical assistance.
