RAPID TESTING WEB BASED TRAINING (RT WBT) – The Waived Rapid HIV testing course was developed as an online independent study with four modules to conduct the Waived Rapid HIV Test. The modules include:

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