Frequently Asked Questions


Do I have to pay to access modules and courses? 

All the modules and learning products are free and accessible to anyone who registers.  There are a limited number of items restricted for access only by health officials.  All other learning products are free, openly accessible and offered to advance the work of public health agency staff.     

Are continuing education credits offered? 

We are currently unable to offer CEUs since we make the material available to such a broad audience.  However, you can choose to use the modules toward your professional self-study requirements. 

Why do I have to register?

We are pleased to develop and disseminate learning products for public health leaders. Having registration information allows us to share user data with our funders on how frequently materials are accessed. 

Can I share materials with my staff?

Yes, please encourage the use of the learning products by your agency staff.  If they do not already have an ASTHO username they can register on the site and have access within minutes.   It is free and offered to advance the work of public health agency staff. 

What is available from the E-learning Center?

The ASTHO eLearning Center provides a centralized source of development, training, and performance content that can be offered and accessed anywhere and at any time. It is free and open to all but does require a login and password. New content will be added quarterly.
