The STD/HIV Division is committed to providing quality training opportunities to build the capacity of our staff, 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 opportunities 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.

Who should attend?

Trainings are 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. 

Where are trainings held?

The STD/HIV Division provides most trainings in Columbia. Trainings are held in other locations on an "as-needed" basis.
