The Essentials of STD Prevention I (formerly known as Online Supervisor Series) is a blended e-learning course designed to provide information and skills necessary to successfully develop and supervise STD partner services staff. This training utilizes a blended eLearning approach made up of sessions that are on-line instructor-led and sessions that have been pre-recorded using Microsoft Live Meeting©.

Participants are expected to view all recorded sessions, attend all on-line instructor-led sessions and complete any self study assignments. The total time commitment for this training is 12 hours spread over a 3 to 5 week time period (depending on the particular offering). Each course offering is limited to 20 participants.

Each individual participant will need to have a computer with access to the internet, the ability to download and install the free Live Meeting© software and a phone (preferably a speakerphone or a phone with a headset). Upon approval, participants will be sent an email with information on how to download and install the Live Meeting© software, the links and passwords for logging into the training sessions and pre-course materials that the participants will need to print and have available the day of the training.
