In an effort to help workers be successful through the process, partner organizations such as the Department of Social and Health Services and the Training Partnership are working to help share information about the DOH exam with workers.
The Training Partnership is excited to announce a free 2-hour Skills Refresher to help students succeed in the Department of Health (DOH) Certification Exam.
