Virtual Training Academy+

The California Department of Public Health (CDPH) and Universities of California, San Francisco (UCSF) and Los Angeles (UCLA), joined together in April of 2020 to rapidly train, scale, and sustain a workforce to respond to the COVID-19 pandemic. Together, we built the California Virtual Training Academy+ (VTA+) to equip a diverse group of redirected state employees, local health jurisdiction staff, community-based organizations, and volunteers with the knowledge and skills to provide crucial services in case investigation and contact tracing.

As the pandemic evolved, so did the VTA, quickly pivoting to meet the needs of local health jurisdictions (LHJs) by creating additional training and support mechanisms to address remote workforce management, outbreak management, vaccine communications, school reopening, and more.
