The  Broward County Health Department is offering a four-hour HIV/AIDS 101 training class, slated for 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Tuesday, May 31, in the Fort Lauderdale Health Center, 2421 SW 6th Ave., Fort Lauderdale.


The department is recommending the class for persons in professions whose certification does not specify continuing education units but requires a certificate of training in HIV/AIDS. CEUs are available for barbers and cosmetologists.

The class will provide the basics of HIV/AIDS and participants will receive information on the latest HIV medications, research and comprehensive HIV prevention.

The class will also provide information on national, regional and local statistics and discussions on evidenced-based interventions.

There is a $20 fee for those seeking certification (a certificate will be issued at the end of the class).  If no certification is needed, attendance is free of charge, on a first-come first-served basis.

Early registration is recommended. For more information or to register, call 954-467-4700 ext. 5812.
