Center for Public Health Workforce Development 

The mission of the Center for Public Health Workforce Development is to provide a link between our faculty and practice partners in teaching, research and the practice of public health. The continuing education activities are designed to strengthen the cooperation between the Center for Public Health Workforce Development and state and local public health practitioners. 

​

Rutgers School of Public Health established Center for Public Health Workforce Development to promote individual and community health through training, education and service. The programs contained within the Center for Public Health Workforce Development are the NJ Public Health Training Center, funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration; and the Center for School and Community Health Education.

The Center for Public Health Workforce Development 

The Center for Public Health Workforce Development offers high quality continuing education programs through four federally sponsored component organizations: the New York/New Jersey Education and Research Center – Continuing Education and Outreach Program (NIOSH); the New Jersey/ New York Hazardous Materials Worker Training Center (NIEHS); the Mid-Atlantic Asbestos Training Center (USEPA); and the Atlantic OSHA Training Center (USDOL). Courses range in length from one to forty hours and address topics such as asbestos, lead abatement, hazardous waste, occupational safety, environmental health and air pollution.
