New Website Provides Effective Training for Title X Community
January 22, 2018
JSI recently launched a redesigned website for the Family Planning National Training Center (fpntc.org) that allows users to find resources easily, enroll in web-based training, and track their training participation.
The goal of the FPNTC is to help family planning and Title X communities in the United States deliver high-quality services. The FPNTC provides training and technical assistance to a network of more than 90 Title X-funded grantees and more than 4,000 service sites. Learn more about the FPNTC project.
JSI undertook a user-centered design process to ensure that the redesigned FPNTC website met the training needs of the family planning community. JSI interviewed representatives from Title X grantees, sub-recipients, and service sites. Based on this research, the new site builds on the previous web-based resource library to provide users with several added-value features:
- Curated Training Content: More than 200 resources are organized into 35 training packages that align with the federal Title X program requirements and Quality Family Planning Recommendations. Users can also answer a few simple questions to find suggested trainings.
- Seamless Course Enrollment: The site streamlines enrollment for eLearning courses so that users with accounts are able to register for and complete courses without leaving the site or providing new registration information each time.
- Save Resources for Later: Users can save resources to their account to read or watch when they have more time.
- Personalized Training Tracking: Users with FPNTC accounts can track the training they complete, including eLearning courses and archived webinars. Users can download certificates of completion and continuing education credits, and generate training reports.
Since the site launched in late October 2017, fpntc.org has had more than 2,500 active users and over 10,000 page views. Users have registered for more than 3,800 eLearning courses and completed more than 4,500 evaluations for eLearning courses and archived webinars. In the coming year, JSI will add advanced training tracking features to allow Title X grantees to better manage training for their networks.
