Background and Brief Description CDC requests OMB approval for the Revision of a currently approved Information Collection Request (ICR) titled Application for Training (OMB Control No. 0920–0017). The mission of CDC’s Division of Scientific Education and Professional Development (DSEPD) is to support the development of a competent, sustainable, and empowered public health workforce. Professionals in public health, epidemiology, medicine, economics, information science, veterinary medicine, nursing, public policy, and other related professions, seek professional development opportunities (both accredited and nonaccredited) through two CDC learning management systems. These two learning management systems are Training and Continuing Education Online (TCEO) (for accredited courses) and CDC TRAIN (for nonaccredited courses developed by CDC programs, grantees, and other funded partners). Access to quality and accredited learning programs and products through these two systems allow for the public health workforce to courses based on learner feedback. At this time, TCEO is also used to generate certificates of attendance and verify training completion, review and approve proposals for educational activities to receive continuing education accreditation, and ensure compliance with mandatory accreditation standards. broaden their knowledge and skills to improve the science and practice of public health for domestic and international impact. The overarching purpose of this ICR is to continually improve CDC training activities and maintain CDC compliance with mandatory accreditation organization standards by efficiently collecting information through CDC’s Training and Continuing Education Online (TCEO) and CDC TRAIN systems, while navigating a future merger that moves to using only one system (CDC TRAIN). This revision requests to extend current approval of the TCEO forms, with one minor change, namely to add two new response options for one question on the TCEO New Participant Registration. This revision also requests to add CDC TRAIN as a data collection system and add two CDC TRAIN standard training evaluation tools (one immediately after the course is taken, and one 3–6 months after the course is taken) that will be employed on the learning management system. This proposed change will provide CDC with an efficient, effective, and secure electronic mechanism for collecting, processing, and monitoring training-related information. CDC will use information collected in both systems to evaluate and improve All data will be collected online, using secure electronic web-based password protected platforms. Respondents will include educational developers requesting accreditation for their trainings and public health and healthcare professionals who seek training. No statistical methods will be used to analyze the information collected. CDC will use identifiable information in TCEO to track participant completion of educational activities to facilitate required reporting to earn continuing education credits, hours, or units. Aggregate and nonaggregate data from the evaluations in TCEO and CDC TRAIN will be used to improve educational activities and assess learning outcomes.

Background and Brief Description

    CDC requests OMB approval for the Revision of a currently approved 
Information Collection Request (ICR) titled Application for Training 
(OMB Control No. 0920-0017). The mission of CDC's Division of 
Scientific Education and Professional Development (DSEPD) is to support 
the development of a competent, sustainable, and empowered public 
health workforce. Professionals in public health, epidemiology, 
medicine, economics, information science, veterinary medicine, nursing, 
public policy, and other related professions, seek professional 
development opportunities (both accredited and nonaccredited) through 
two CDC learning management systems. These two learning management 
systems are Training and Continuing Education Online (TCEO) (for 
accredited courses) and CDC TRAIN (for nonaccredited courses developed 
by CDC programs, grantees, and other funded partners). Access to 
quality and accredited learning programs and products through these two 
systems allow for the public health workforce to broaden their 
knowledge and skills to improve the science and practice of public 
health for domestic and international impact.
    The overarching purpose of this ICR is to continually improve CDC 
training activities and maintain CDC compliance with mandatory 
accreditation organization standards by efficiently collecting 
information through CDC's Training and Continuing Education Online 
(TCEO) and CDC TRAIN systems, while navigating a future merger that 
moves to using only one system (CDC TRAIN). This revision requests to 
extend current approval of the TCEO forms, with one minor change, 
namely to add two new response options for one question on the TCEO New 
Participant Registration. This revision also requests to add CDC TRAIN 
as a data collection system and add two CDC TRAIN standard training 
evaluation tools (one immediately after the course is taken, and one 3-
6 months after the course is taken) that will be employed on the 
learning management system. This proposed change will provide CDC with 
an efficient, effective, and secure electronic mechanism for 
collecting, processing, and monitoring training-related information.
    CDC will use information collected in both systems to evaluate and 
improve courses based on learner feedback. At this time, TCEO is also 
used to generate certificates of attendance and verify training 
completion, review and approve proposals for educational activities to 
receive continuing education accreditation, and ensure compliance with 
mandatory accreditation standards.
    All data will be collected online, using secure electronic web-
based password protected platforms. Respondents will include 
educational developers requesting accreditation for their trainings and 
public health and healthcare professionals who seek training. No 
statistical methods will be used to analyze the information collected. 
CDC will use identifiable information in TCEO to track participant 
completion of educational activities to facilitate required reporting 
to earn continuing education credits, hours, or units. Aggregate and 
non-aggregate data from the evaluations in TCEO and CDC TRAIN will be 
used to improve educational activities and assess learning outcomes.
    CDC requests OMB approval for an estimated 412,600 annual burden 
hours. There are no costs to respondents other than their time to 
participate.
