2024: HIV/AIDS 501 UPDATE Course (LIVE VIRTUAL)

Annual participation is required for recertification of all HIV counselors and testers in the county and state. Recertification is required to continue HIV testing.

This training is only available to certified HIV Testing Counselors.

All counselors need to pre-register themselves. We are not accepting/managers requests or sharing computers with others including those not pre-registered. You will have to have filled out the final link to your registration 3 days before the 501 Update training so that our guest speaker will have the registration list and how many participants they will have. No late requests will be accepted.

You must attend the entire training to get credit for attending. Attendance is monitored and those joining late, not participating, or leaving early will not get credit. You must be able to speak and participate in online chats and/or polls. Certificates will be emailed to you directly.

If you missed the expiration date on your certificate, you will have to retake the HIV/AIDS 500-501 training (you will not have to do the Practicum again unless it has been more than 3 years since you had an update) and after you complete this, you will then have to attend a virtual live 501 Update session within 60 days to be up to date with your certification.

Please fill out the pre-registration form and pick a date from the drop-down list.

If you have any questions please contact Lori Jordahl, STD/HIV Program Consultant, at Lori.Jordahl@flhealth.gov or (305) 575-5436.
