The Tobacco Technical Assistance Consortium (TTAC) is offering two upcoming distance learning courses for public health practitioners. The 12-week Fundamentals of Evaluation web-based course guides participants through the evaluation process – from planning to reporting results – while giving them the opportunity to develop their own evaluation plan. The next Fundamentals of Evaluation course will be offered from April 9 – June 29, 2012. The 6-week Logic Model Essentials web-based course provides an understanding of the purpose and features of a logic model, the skills and tools needed to build a logic model, and knowledge of the important ways to apply logic model results. The next session of Logic Model Essentials will be held from July 16 through August 24, 2012. Both courses offer an engaging learning experience with visual aids, group discussion, self-assessments, and individual learning activities. Click here to register. The registration deadline for Fundamentals of Evaluation is March 30, 2012. Registration for Logic Model Essentials will close on July 6, 2012.

There are currently over forty pages available on a variety of subjects related to tobacco products such as the Tobacco Control Act, youth access to tobacco products, labeling and advertising, and state and local tobacco resources.
