The Positive Culture Framework is an approach based on our research about improving health and safety in communities and organizations. The Framework builds on shared values and beliefs that already exist in a culture to improve health and safety. It addresses key skills (the how), steps in a process (the what), and the context for doing the work (the where). Learn more about our Framework here.


Our 2.5-day Positive Culture Framework Training provides a foundation for efforts to improve health and safety that address a wide variety of complex social issues. Training attendees will: 
  • Learn how culture influences behavior 
  • Develop and refine skills in three critical areas: leadership, communication, and the integration of effective strategies
  • Gain specific next steps for transforming culture to improve health and safety
What makes this Training unique?
The Positive Culture Framework Training is an excellent opportunity to engage with others across the country and move toward cultivating a culture that supports and sustains health and safety. There are multiple opportunities for open dialogue and discussion among attendees at the Training. Step-by-step handouts, interactive training sessions, and small group activities provide attendees with an informative, engaging experience.

Who should attend?
The Training is designed for anyone working to improve health and safety such as (but not limited to) traffic safety professionals, substance use disorder prevention professionals, prevention specialists, violence prevention advocates, coalition members, government personnel, educators, and law enforcement officers.


All attendees receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of the Training at no additional cost. For those seeking additional recognition for their time at the Training other than a Certificate of Completion, the following continuing education credits are typically offered at our Trainings: 


Non-specific Continuing Education Units (CEUs) 
Attendees can earn non-specific CEUs from Montana State University’s Office of Continuing, Professional, and Lifelong Learning. CEUs are used to meet professional development requirements for professionals in careers such as engineering, child care, medicine, and counseling. CEUs cost an additional $25.00 per person.
Certified in Public Health (CPH) Recertification Credits
We partner with the National Board of Public Health Examiners to offer CPH recertification credits at our events. CPH recertification credits may be earned at the 2020 Positive Culture Framework Training. The credits are offered at no additional cost. 
Continuing Education Credit Hours (CECH) in Health Education
For our 2020 Training, we are applying for continuing education contact hours (CECH) in health education from the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing, Inc. (NCHEC).


Please come back soon for information on the 2020 Training registration!
The registration fee includes all training sessions for 2.5 days as well as:
  • Positive Culture Framework manual
  • Daily handouts
  • Certificate of Completion
  • Refreshments and beverages
  • Optional: CEUs (additional $25.00)


What is the dress code? Business casual.
What materials should I bring to the training? We will provide all materials that are necessary for the training including pens, notepads, handouts, agendas, sticky notes, and the Positive Culture Framework Training manuals.
What is the difference between CEUs and CECH? CEUs are used to meet professional development requirements for professionals in careers such as engineering, child care, medicine, and counseling. CECH are continuing education credits for Certified Health Education Specialists (CHES). CECH are provided by the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing (NCHEC). Please note: all participants will receive a Certificate of Completion at the end of the training at no additional cost. The Certificate of Completion is different than CEUs and CECH.
How many people will be at the training? Our past trainings have ranged from 30 to 55 people. Group activities and discussions play an important role in our training so, we have found that small to moderate-sized groups work well.
