  9. Available Courses Summary

  10. Gap Matrix

  11. Academy Considerations • Develop as a “curriculum” rather than a “course”. • Utilize training materials and training frameworks available from various states and NHI. • Manage scope as courses are developed. • Consider all available delivery methods

  12. Next Steps • Obtain external input and validation • Establish Technical Panel for curriculum and course development • Finalize course curriculum and training course outline • Refine scope, target audience, and outcomes for proposed course • Initiate training course development contract
