For 37 years, ETR, a national non-profit, has been devoted to providing science-based services, programs and training in health and wellness with a particular emphasis on HIV/STI prevention. As a national content expert in the development, delivery, and evaluation of virtual, in-person and blended training and technical assistance, ETR utilizes an innovative research-based professional learning model to help organizations and individuals achieve sustainable competencies, knowledge and skills. ETR has partnered with Monarch Media, PROCEED and a diverse and exciting group of Subject Matter Experts to develop and implement a national eLearning training program for the high-impact HIV prevention workforce (HIPW). ETR’s National eLearning Center, Evolve (Component 1, Track A), seeks to increase the number of organizations implementing HIP interventions and public health strategies by increasing the number of available, relevant and updated eLearning and blended trainings. Evolve’s eLearning and blended trainings will increase access to self-directed and inclusive learning, respond to the common and culturally-specific needs of HIPW learners, use research-based methods and innovations to sustain learning outcomes, and ultimately strengthen the quality and impact of HIP strategies. Using ETR’s research-based Distributive Learning Process, ETR Evolve will work with CDC, our partners, PS 19-1904 CBA providers and HIPW professionals to create, test, market and evaluate new and updated eLearning and blended learning trainings to build on the existing talent and skills of the HIPW as community champions while addressing needs that arise from working on sensitive and complex behavioral health issues. The project outcomes are: by March 2024 ETR will: 1) Increase the accessibility and availability of CDC-approved trainings available in eLearning or blended learning formats; 2) Increase the number of organizations implementing CDC-supported high-impact HIV inte
rventions and public health strategies; and 3) Increase the skills and confidence of the multidisciplinary members of the HIPW to provide HIP interventions to people living with HIV and persons at high risk for HIV infection.
