The survey is divided into 3-sections:

  2. Training Needs and Preferences (5 to 15 mins): understand what type of training people need, e.g., public health topics, technology and professional trainings.
  3.  Competency Self-Assessment (10 to 20 mins – recommended but optional): self-rating of public health skills, knowledge, and experiences.
