The TrainingFinder Real-time Affiliate Integrated Network, or TRAIN, is the nation’s premier learning resource for professionals who protect the public’s health. TRAIN is comprised of the national www.train.org site and participating TRAIN affiliate sites. Affiliate sites are managed by many state public health agencies, academic partners, and others. As TRAIN grows, it serves a larger portion of the U.S. public health workforce.

Because all TRAIN sites are connected, TRAIN users can access information about state, local, national, or international training available to them through any participating TRAIN site.

TRAIN allows learners to:

  • Search or browse the nationwide database for on-site or distance learning courses
  • Sign up for e-mails about new courses
  • Create a personal learning record of competency-based training
  • Provide and view feedback about courses listed on the site
  • Register online for many courses
  • Earn CEUs (often at no cost)

TRAIN allows course providers to:

  • Efficiently publicize courses to thousands of TRAIN users through multiple web sites – enter course information once (not dozens of times) and it is automatically visible to all participating TRAIN sites
  • Manage online registration and student rosters
  • Collect feedback from learners online
  • Post course materials and discussion topics
