Alabama Public Health Training Center (ALPHTC) Learning Management System (LMS) hosts free and self-paced online courses with Continuing Education Units (CEUs). To access our LMS, please click the link “Online Learning” on the home page.
If you do not have an account with the ALPHTC, please click the link “Create new account.”
You will be prompted to complete and submit a registration form. Please follow the instructions on the registration form. You will receive an approval email to your address once your registration has been processed (usually within one business day). Once you have received this email, you can enroll in courses.
The Alabama Public Health Training Center is supported through grant 1UB6HP22824-01-00 from the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) of the US Department of Health and Human Services. As part of this cooperative agreement, HRSA requires the AL PHTC to collect specific demographic data on all its trainees in order to better describe program accomplishments and effectiveness.
Our courses are organized by sections, which are Course Introduction, Pretest, Course Presentation, Posttest, Course Evaluation and Additional Resources. Some courses, because of the nature of their content, will have a posttest following each module. Once you are enrolled, you will be able to view the course introduction and pretest.
Presentation videos and handouts (if applicable) will be available to you when the pretest has been completed. Please click the video link to view the presentation. If there is a link to the course handouts, click the link to view and print off the handouts.
You will find your course certificate, CEU sign in sheet, CEU evaluation form, and maybe some additional course readings or videos. You have to pass the posttest and complete the course evaluation before you can receive your course certificate and CEU materials.
If you click the “Online Learning” tab at the top navigation bar, you will see all the available courses. If you want to go to your own course list, please click the link “My courses” in the left Navigation block. The dropdown list includes the courses in which you are enrolled. Click any course link to go to the course page.

If you are using your computer from work and having trouble viewing the videos, you may need to contact your IT department. You may need your IT personnel’s help to install the software or to change your firewall status.
