CDC's Important Update on d-up! Trainings

CDC's Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention (DHAP) no longer offers face-to-face training for d-up!; however, technical assistance (TA) is still available at CDC's CRIS: Capacity Building Assistance (CBA) Request Information System. As an alternative to the face-to-face trainings, health professionals and individuals interested in implementing d-up! are encouraged to register for d-up! Online at Danya's HIP eLearning Center. See below for details. 
The newly created on-line training of facilitators for d-up! consists of 14 interactive modules that include over 200 videos of subject matter experts demonstrating elements of the intervention and offering implementation advice and lessons learned. This new training also includes applied practice experiences for participants and implementation planning tools to increase readiness to begin facilitating d-up! in their own agencies. All training and implementation materials are available from this site. Please click on the link below to register for the d-up! eLearning course.
