It is the goal of CPCA's Training department to enhance community health centers' (CHCs) capacity and competitiveness by developing timely and leading-edge trainings. Integrating practical, strategic, and relational skill-building will increase CHCs' abilities to respond to and evolve within the ever-changing health care environment. CPCA sponsors a variety of trainings throughout the year and also co-sponsors trainings with federal and state organizations and CPCA regional associations. CPCA is committed to serving our members' training needs and as such has developed multi-level training modules on numerous topics.

TRAINING FEES UPDATE - Effective April 1, 2021
Last year, in recognition of the tremendous financial stress members were facing and to ensure that important and timely information could be accessed with no barriers, CPCA elected to waive training fees for the entire membership year (April 1,2020- March 31, 2021) and offer all training at no cost. As we continue to work in this pandemic environment to provide members the support they need, we must also plan for the future while supporting community health centers in improving the health status of their communities through advocacy, education, and services. Which is why the Board of Directors approved a budget in February that reflects a reinstatement of training fees effective for trainings taking place on or after April 1, 2021. If you have any questions or concerns about this change, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org

Balances are due upon receipt and must be received prior to the training or event.
If an in-person event sells out due to limited capacity, the CPCA training team will maintain a waitlist to reallocate any spots that become available. We encourage you to submit a waitlist request for one member of your staff only as to expedite communication if a spot should open. All waitlist requests must be made in writing and sent to Training@cpca.org. Once CPCA staff are notified of an opening, the first entry on the waitlist will be notified via email and will have until the end of the next business day to confirm by replying to the email. If confirmation is not received by the end of the next business day, the open spot will be given to the next entry on the waitlist.
Note: If there are fewer than 5 business days before the event, the confirmation timeframe will change to the end of the same business day.
