NCCMT Resources Mapped to the Core Competencies for Public Health

About the Tool

The Public Health Agency of Canada (PHAC) has outlined what they call the “basic building blocks of public health education and professional development” in their list of skill areas known as core competencies.

The NCCMT’s Public Health Agency of Canada Core Competency Mapping Tool was developed to help busy practitioners find the many resources available from the NCCMT that support the Public Health Agency of Canada’s Core Competencies for Public Health in Canada. Use this tool to plan professional development activities tailored to you and your team’s needs.

Getting Started

The Learning Needs Self-Assessment Tool is designed to help public health practitioners identify learning needs related to the core competencies. This tool was developed by the Public Health Agency of Canada Skills Online program.
