The Florida public health system is a collaborative partnership among all public, private, and voluntary entities that contribute to the delivery of essential public health services within the state.
All public, private, and voluntary entities that contribute to the delivery of essential public health services within the state that work independently from the Department, and would like to join TRAIN Florida as an affiliate, will be considered a Public Health System Partner (PHSP).
As a TRAIN Florida affiliate, the PHSP will be required to assign a TRAIN Florida LMS Administrator to manage their assigned learners and courses.
It’s a New Day in Public Health and an integrated DOH is critical to our mission. Effective July 2013, the TRAIN Florida learning management system (DOH LMS) became the official source of the Department’s learning resources. TRAIN Florida is a cost effective, well based learning management system which benefits our Public Health System Partners (PHSP) by providing:
TRAIN is a comprehensive, flexible and user friendly system. The TRAIN LMS is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week, and currently provides access to 30,000 public health related courses. TRAIN offers practical solutions for learners, by managing knowledge content, delivering information content, tracking learner activity, and communicating with learners.
Through TRAIN, learners have access to courses from nationally recognized course providers. These courses are offered as self-paced web-based learning, on-site or classroom learning, webinars, webcasts, and more.
A learner can browse the course catalog or perform a search by keyword, subject area, course provider, and competency, among others. Completed courses are captured in the form of an online transcript. This personal transcript, maintained by TRAIN, learner, records all training for every learner.
The database of learner records can be queried to generate tailored reports with regard to course rosters and individual learning, making TRAIN a valuable tool for the management of public health workforce development.
