NHSN is committed to the training and education of its users. Because NHSN staff receives more requests for training than can be accommodated, the following policy and procedures have been established to assist in responding more equitably and effectively.

Please read the NHSN Training Policy before you submit the training request form.

  6. Webinar trainings will not be offered to fewer than 20 participants.
  7. Webinar service and related webcast costs must be provided by the requesting organization.
  8. All accepted webinar trainings will be posted on the NHSN website training calendar so that any NHSN user or potential user may have an opportunity to register and attend the webinar training sessions offered.
  9. Hands-on, interactive computer training will be limited to national conferences or CDC-sponsored trainings only.

I have read and understand that the requesting organization(s) will be responsible for the webinar service and any related costs for providing the webinar.

The requesting organization is willing to publicly post the webinar training for other NHSN users or potential users to access.

I have read and understand that the requesting organization(s) will provide airfare, lodging, meals, and ground transportation in destination city in-kind, and that the organization may not use federal money to pay for these expenses.
