In order to more effectively and efficiently meet Title X training needs in the rapidly evolving health care environment, OPA moved from a regional training model to a national training model for the funding cycle beginning September 1, 2012. Applicants competed to provide training and technical assistance on a national level addressing priority areas identified by OPA. Training Centers are working in tandem and in collaboration with OPA to address the needs of Title X family planning service providers and grantees within their training scopes. Grantees and providers should continue to forward questions regarding training to their Regional Program Consultants.

The National Training Center for Coordination and Strategic Initiatives (CSI) provides coordination for the five training centers and OPA so that the training centers can seamlessly market and deliver training programs and resources to meet Title X grantee and health provider needs. CSI also develops national strategies to address specific priority issues and populations. For more information about this training center visit www.fpntc.org.
