Training - HIV, AIDS, STIs

Capacity building works to improve the performance and quality of HIV prevention initiatives by increasing the knowledge and skills to implement and sustain science-based, culturally appropriate HIV prevention interventions and strategies. Capacity building assistance (CBA) comes in many forms including training, resource sharing, technical assistance, and professional consultation.

To request capacity building assistance, please submit a request.

Training

Training is a major component of capacity building and the STD/HIV Division is committed to providing quality training opportunities for our staff, grantees, contractors, and others who provide STD/HIV services to the citizens of South Carolina. Authorized national, state and local technical assistance providers and DHEC staff provide training designed to provide service providers with the necessary skills to deliver services in test decision counseling, behavioral-based prevention interventions, clinic-based activities, and other areas of prevention, care, and supportive services.

It is important that all training participants read and agree to the Participant Guidelines and Expectations.

Who Should Attend?

Training is open to DHEC staff, DHEC-funded contractors/grantees, health service organizations, AIDS service organizations, alcohol and other drug (AOD) prevention and treatment programs, and community health centers unless otherwise indicated. Priority for training slots will be given to DHEC- funded contractors/grantees and health department staff.

Note: It is recommended that you take the prerequisite courses (HIV 101, STIs 101, SC HIV/STD Laws, and Understanding Viral Hepatitis) at least once every 3 years.
