Launched in January 2005, Health Promotion 101 is an on-line, self-directed course designed for health promotion practitioners as well as those interested in learning more about the field of health promotion. The course was developed collaboratively by the members of the Ontario Health Promotion Resource Centre System (OHPRS), with funding from the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care (OMHLTC).

The course consists of nine modules addressing the key aspects of health promotion theory and practice, including key definitions and concepts, models of health, theories of behaviour, organization and community change, and health promotion values and strategies. The material presented in the course will familiarize learners with essential health promotion concepts, and, in so doing, increase their capacity to promote healthy changes in individuals, organizations and communities.
