The public health community includes all organizations and individuals who work to improve public health: private and public, technical and non-technical, internal and external to CDC. If you are a member, the CDC Learning Connection (CDC LC) can help you increase your public health knowledge and skills and help meet your professional development needs.

The CDC LC provides an online gateway to quality training for the public health community through a single point of entry. The Internet site features quality e-learning, a monthly spotlight on timely public health topics, and its newest addition, CDC TRAIN, a public health learning management system (LMS).


Through collaboration with the Public Health Foundation, CDC TRAIN provides free access to learning products for the public health community. With more than 3,800 nationally recognized course providers and over 22,500 courses, TRAIN National maintains the most comprehensive searchable catalog of learning products available to the public health community. Together, the CDC LC and CDC TRAIN offer an efficient, organized approach to acquire public health training.

  • Access learning resources — including continuing education courses — 24/7
