HIV Testing in Non-Clinical Settings

Conducting HIV Testing in Nonclinical Settings is a 2-day course intended for people who wish to learn about individual HIV testing and who plan to provide HIV testing in nonclinical settings. Participants who will be attending this training should have a basic understanding of HIV transmission prior to attending the training.

The course will prepare HIV testing providers to describe and implement CDC’s Six-Step Protocol for HIV testing. It will foster key interpersonal communication skills, provide opportunities to practice the protocol, and improve participants’ ability to link patients who are living with or at high risk for HIV infection into care, prevention or treatment services.

*This training does not teach participants how to collect blood or oral samples or teach participants how to use a specific rapid HIV testing.
