Training Resources

As a convenience for WHWB trainers and trainees, links to the resources used in our training programs have been collected below. This list includes two categories of material. The greater source of materials is and will continue to be the excellent materials provided by OHTA on their web site These were created by OHTA for use in support of their courses and will be used by trainers and trainees in any of the OHTA courses offered by WHWB. The material for each course consists of a Student manual, a Course Syllabus, Course materials consisting of a set of PowerPoint presentations and in some cases, videos.

The second category includes all of those materials produced and donated by WHWB members. These materials may include materials for specific short courses, on-line courses, webinars and other presentations.
