HIV 500/501 TRAINING

HIV 500 is the required four hour training prerequisite for HIV 501 Client-centered counseling, testing, and Partner Services training. The HIV 500 course provides specific information related to HIV history, origination, transmission modes, disease progression, testing types/options, prevention, universal precautions, laws, and statistics to prepare participants to become HIV pre and post test counselors.

HIV 501 counseling, testing, and Partner Services training is a two and one-half day (2 1/2) session. This training provides a greater understanding of HIV/AIDS, testing protocols; HIV relevance to domestic violence; and enhancement in client-centered risk reduction counseling skills for individuals providing services in the public and private sector.

HIV 501 Update is an annual 2 hour class that includes updates on forms, processes, legislation, programs, statistics and is required of all HIV pre and post test counselors.
