This is a two-day virtual course; you must be in attendance and be able to participate in all activities.  If your computer does not have a microphone, there is a call-in number.  We require both speaking and filling in some info on chats and polls during the entire training.  Please let your supervisors know you cannot be working in your jobs during this training as you will be asked to leave the training and be put on the waiting list if you are not responding when your name is called.  We keep this certification training active during the entire time.

All post-training (practicum) requirements need to be completed within 60 days of the HIV/AIDS 500/501 virtual training. All counselors will observe and perform a minimum of one pre-test counseling session, one HIV-negative post-test counseling session and one HIV-positive post-test counseling session with a certified HIV counselor at a Registered HIV Testing Site in Miami-Dade County. Role playing is not accepted for this practicum.
