Due to the closure of HPF’s CPD online course platform by Gecco on August 31, 2023, we will be transitioning our courses to a new platform. To keep you informed about this move, we will be sending out notifications through our Facebook page, website, and Te Rongo (monthly notice).

Our online courses are for your continuous professional development (CPD).  If you are already working in the field of health promotion or public health, these courses will further enhance your knowledge and skills. The courses are also designed to enable those who are new to health promotion and public health to be able to learn new knowledge and skills.
