Purpose of the Awardee Meeting
The semi-annual WTP Awardee Meeting brought awardees together to provide program updates, exchange information regarding training, and discover new areas of interest to awardees.
Purpose and Scope of the Workshop
Continued advances in training technologies require the NIEHS Worker Training Program (WTP) to take a strategic look at how best to use these technologies to enhance HAZMAT training programs. WTP has followed the development and application of training technologies since 1999, when it held its first workshop on computer and Internet-based learning methods for safety and health training. This workshop built on the program's work in this area, exploring the types of technologies that are being used inside and outside of classrooms and the generational differences that impact learning and training.
