Health Consequences of Smoking, Vaping, and Air Quality on the Human Body.

E-cigarette use among youth and young adults has become a public health concern. E-cigarettes are now the most commonly used tobacco product product among youth, surpassing conventional cigarettes. Are e-cigarettes safer than conventional cigarettes? How exactly does an e-cigarette work? Is it legal for a teen to use an e-cigarette? Why would someone choose to vape rather than smoke a traditional cigarette? Smoking is now prohibited on the premises of a child care center in North Carolina and e-cigarettes have been added to the smoking restrictions for staff. Attend this training to distinguish between second and third hand smoke, their affects on air quality, describe how an e-cigarette works and the dangers of smoking e-cigarettes.

This training has been approved to meet the building and physical premises requirement for the CCDF Health & Safety trainings.

Participants are required to read course handouts, engage in online activity slides, engage in online coursework for a required length of time, and pass a post knowledge assessment with a score of 90% or higher in order to earn the course certificate. The post knowledge assessment may be taken multiple times to ensure success.
