Registration Open: CDC RealOpt© Training on Vaccination Planning and POD Sites

Sep 14, 2020 | Kimberly Sharpe-Scott

Registration is now available for CDC’s three remaining virtual instructor-led RealOpt© training sessions in 2020 on vaccination and point-of-dispensing (POD) sites. Registration for the RealOpt© training is completed through CDC TRAIN. The training registration deadline is seven days prior to the course date. Training sessions will be held on:

  • Thursday, October 15
  • Monday, November 16
  • Thursday, December 10

During the sessions, participants will learn the basic components of RealOpt©, a computer modeling program that determines POD or vaccination site staff requirements and examines process efficiencies based on site-specific configurations. With this tool, participants will learn to manipulate existing POD and vaccine flow models and how to run and interpret the performance reports. By the end of the session, participants will have learned how to build or modify their own models to identify where staff should be allocated and how to eliminate bottlenecks and optimize processing times.

CDC encourages POD and vaccination managers, local and state medical countermeasure planners, and other preparedness planners to register for one of the upcoming monthly training sessions.
