Introduction

Welcome to the Growth Chart training Web site, which offers a set of self-directed, interactive training courses for health care professionals using the pediatric growth charts in clinical and public health settings to assess growth of infants, children, and teens.

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend that health care providers in primary care settings in the United States, use the WHO growth standard charts to monitor the growth of children aged birth to younger than 2 years regardless of type of feeding; and to use the 2000 CDC growth reference charts to monitor growth of children aged 2 until aged 20 years.

The overall purpose of the training is to provide health care professionals in the United States with expertise on using and interpreting the growth charts. Users can complete any or all of the training courses in the desired sequence and at no cost. Each course includes learning objectives, text, and examples. Estimated time to complete each course is provided in the About this Course page.

The training courses include:
