be asked to participate in distance learning prerequisite activities (MCH PHN 100). Following
attendance at MCH PHN 200 (in-person training), there will be post classroom distance
learning (MCH PHN 300) that will be required to be completed within 9 months of the MCH PHN

previously attended MCH training. However, we will take a wait list for experienced PHNs who are
interested in the new curriculum. As we have space available they will be welcome to join. Plan to
spend 8-10 hours in a combination of webinars and self-paced review of reading materials prior to
coming to the onsite training. Details will be provided upon registration.
