After taking the community assessment training, I partnered with Proximate Learning to help build our agency staff's capacity to successfully complete our public health accreditation process. We received the guidance and direction we needed and our staff learned valuable skills.

Proximate Learning, LLC is a woman-owned small business that works with non-profits and government organizations to provide learning and leadership consultation to health sectors. Founded by Dr. Kirsten Rodgers in 2016, the business has grown to include a network of eight doctorally trained education consultants. Proximate Learning has worked with over 53 clients in 10 states to provide quality professional development and continuing education for healthcare and public health professionals.
Healthcare and related fields require a variety of skills, some in which an agency, or office may not have an expertise. Whether a skill gap has been identified or whether an expert is needed to help identify a gap, Proximate Learning training services can offer guidance when you or your agency needs it. With expert advice and customized training programs, Proximate Learning will provide your agency or office with learning support and expertise.
Training should adequately prepare health professionals to do their jobs better, more efficiently, and with less stress. Often trainings span hours or days and are theoretical in nature. The lack of active learning or just the lag between education and experience makes it difficult for learners to effectively translate new knowledge into action. Proximate Learning consultants are experts in how adults learn and offer the best learning opportunities for immediate practice.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT COURSES
Proximate Learning understands that health professionals are busy. Career credentials require recertification and it can be difficult to find affordable and useful learning experiences. While webinars and online trainings offer sufficient topic-specific materials, they do not often have the time to develop new skills or dig deeper into a content area. Proximate Learning is dedicated to offering virtual and hybrid professional development courses for health professionals in the comfort of their home or office.
