Tennessee Department of Health (TDH) Employees and Sub-Recipients of Contracts from the TDH
Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 is a national law that protects persons from discrimination based on their race, color, or national origin in programs and activities that receive federal financial assistance. In order for the Tennessee Department of Health to maintain compliance, a concentrated effort must be made to educate and train all departmental employees annually.
To streamline the process, an annual on-line Refresher training module (30 minutes including test) for employees has been developed. Click on the link below (register if you are new to the LifePath site, then go back to the sign-in page), sign in and click on the Refresher module. After viewing the slides, go back to the “home” page and click on the – Test. After passing the test, go back to the “home” page and click on print Certificate. The Certificate will automatically print your name, the date, etc.; give the Certificate to your supervisor for your personnel (Human Resources) file.
***NOTE: All Sub-recipients and New Hires are to take the “Sub-recipient and New Hires Module.” Other TDH employees may also choose this module; it is 25 minutes longer (videos included) than the Refresher module.
