The CDC on-line “Rapid HIV Testing Training Course” will offer an opportunity for HIV Prevention Providers working in non-clinical settings to gain knowledge and skills on administering rapid HIV testing.  Rapid HIV Testing will allow providers greater reach into places where HIV testing has not been available.

  • Overview and Introduction to Rapid HIV Testing
  • Safe Work Practices and Specimen Collection for Rapid HIV Testing
  • Quality Assurance and Quality Control in a Rapid HIV Testing Environment
  • HIV Prevention Counseling and Providing Rapid HIV Test Results 

All materials in the course are based on CDC guidelines, protocols and established best practices related to rapid HIV testing, as seen in clinical and non-clinical settings. To learn more about CDC's Rapid HIV Testing course, please review FAQs and Trouble-shooting Rapid Testing Web-based Training.

How to access the Rapid HIV Testing online trainings

SEROSTATUS MATTERS is a video-based educational program designed to help health care providers incorporate routine HIV screening into clinical practice.

The four learning modules included in this program address the following topics:
  • The importance of routine HIV screening 
  • Practical considerations for HIV screening implementation in the primary care clinician's practice
  • Communicating test results with patients
  • Counseling the HIV-infected patient
These topics are modeled through a series of physician-patient vignettes with patients of different ethnicity and sexual preference. The vignettes portray three office visits and follow-up appointments for patients with different HIV test results: HIV positive, indeterminate, and HIV negative with a high risk for infection.
