HIV/AIDS
Training Unit

The Illinois Department of Public Health's HIV/AIDS Section Training Unit is dedicated to providing quality educational programs; technical assistance and training that meet a wide range of objectives, thereby enhancing knowledge and skills in the areas of HIV/AIDS.

GENERAL TRAINING INFORMATION AND EXPECTATIONS:

  • There is no registration fee for these courses.
  • Only employees of agencies funded by the Illinois Department of Public Health, HIV/AIDS and Sexually Transmitted Diseases sections may register for these courses.
  • Registration will be confirmed via e-mail by HIV/AIDS Section staff.
  • Directions to the training site will be provided in the confirmation notice.
  • Participants must attend all workshops/trainings in their entirety to receive certificates of attendance.
  • As a courtesy to everyone, workshop/training attendees must be punctual. Please plan to arrive a minimum of 15 minutes prior to the start time.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING NEW RULES, AS OF MAY 1, 2007:

We have had multiple problems with pre-registered individuals not showing up for trainings, and not calling to notify IDPH. This takes up valuable slots in training for other individuals who were not able to sign up (as courses may fill). Similarly, we have had individuals who show up at trainings without pre-registering, causing crowded training rooms and insufficient resources for training. Thus, the following rules have been created:

    1. No one will be admitted to any training unless they are pre-registered, and have received confirmation from IDPH. If your name is not on the pre-registration sheet, you will not be admitted.

      THERE ARE ABSOLUTELY NO EXCEPTIONS TO THIS RULE

    2. Anyone who fails to attend a training in which they have pre-registered and have not notified IDPH no less than 48 hours prior to the training, will not be allowed to register for any other trainings (including the Annual HIV/STD Conference) for a period of three months. If you can not attend a training in which you have pre-registered, you must notify IDPH no less than 48 hours prior to the start of the training.

      Exceptions may be made on a case by case basis for illness or emergencies, pending review by the Department.
