Continuing Education

The Alaska Coalition for Veterans and Military Families strives to provide free continuing education opportunities wherever and whenever possible so service providers are equipped to better serve Alaska’s Service members, Veterans and Families. To augment our in-person training events, we have identified leaders in the field who provide online trainings and continuing education for free.

The Alaska Coalition for Veterans and Military Families does not endorse any training platform, but seeks to provide quality and free training opportunities whenever possible.

PsychArmor recruits nationally recognized subject matter experts to create and deliver online courses about issues relevant to the military and Veteran communities. Our self-paced courses are delivered within nine topic areas geared toward military culture, healthcare providers, employers, K-12 educators, higher education, volunteers, caregivers and families, transitioning service members, and communities serving Veterans. We provide critical resources to all Americans who work with, live with, and care about Veterans.

The Center for Deployment Psychology (CDP) trains military and civilian behavioral health professionals to provide high-quality, culturally-sensitive, evidence-based behavioral health services to military personnel, Veterans and their families. The CDP offers a four-part module on Military Culture Competency. Modules include:

  1. Self-Assessment and Introduction to Military Ethos
  2. Military Organization and Roles
  3. Stressors and Resources
  4. Treatment, Resources and Tools

Each module takes about two hours to complete. CDP offers additional eLearning opportunities with continuing education credits for a fee.

TRAIN is a national learning network that provides thousands of quality training opportunities to more than one million professionals who protect and improve the public’s health.

Powered by the Public Health Foundation (PHF), the TRAIN Learning Network brings together agencies and organizations in the public health, healthcare, and preparedness sectors to disseminate, track, and share trainings for the health workforce on a centralized training platform.

The TRAIN Learning Network is comprised of:

  • State and federal TRAIN Affiliates that operate branded TRAIN web portals, have administrative access to the TRAIN platform, and work together to coordinate and share workforce training efforts.
  • Government agencies, academic institutions, and other nationally-recognized and respected organizations that post content to the TRAIN Learning Network in order to disseminate and track their trainings to the health workforce.
  • TRAIN learners from all US states and territories, as well as other 177 countries. Anyone can register as a learner on TRAIN at no cost and access thousands of openly available course offerings, the majority of which are free.
