NBPHE Job Task Analysis: Responses Needed by June 30

The National Board of Public Health Examiners (NBPHE) is conducting a job task analysis for public health, which will define performance domains and tasks performed by a public health professional, and the necessary knowledge and skills associated with these tasks.

Job tasks analysis are typically performed to ensure the integrity of a professional examination.  However, in addition to confirming how well the Certified in Public Health (CPH) certification examination measures the competence of CPH candidates, the evidence-based data stemming from the job task analysis will also be useful to the seminal ASPPH Framing the Future initiative which is looking at the future of public health education.

A panel of employers representing the various sectors of public health put together this job task analysis survey.  It will take approximately 30 minutes to complete.   Anyone working in public health is invited to respond.

NBPHE invites you to complete the survey found at You may also share this link with colleagues.

In recognition of the fact that this is a significant time committment, the NBPHE will be raffling off 5 iPads to individuals who complete the survey.

The job task analysis survey will close on June 30, 2014. A summary of the findings of the study will be available on the NBPHE website by the fall of 2014.
