Training resources are available to improve the knowledge, skills, and competencies of an interdisciplinary HIV prevention workforce (e.g., professional, technical, clinical, and managerial) seeking to plan, integrate, implement, and sustain HIV prevention programs and services.
The CDC-funded National HIV Classroom Learning Center (NHCLC) conducts a state-of-the-art training program for the HIV prevention workforce in communities that have been hit hardest by HIV. Trainings address implementation of CDC-supported high impact prevention (HIP) interventions and public health strategies as well as supplemental topics such as social determinants of health, health equity, recruitment, retention, adaptation, and evaluation. The NHCLC training calendar allows you to view the current schedule and register for free virtual, instructor-led and classroom trainings.
Using the CBA Tracking System (CTS), CDC directly funded health departments, community-based organizations (CBOs), and/or clinics may request NHCLC trainings for their local jurisdictions. Organizations not directly funded by CDC should contact their state health department for assistance in submitting a request for training through CTS.
The goal of the CDC-funded National Learning Community for HIV Community-Based Organization (CBO) Leadership is to engage HIV CBO managers in a tailored, online learning experience that will empower them to successfully manage the people, programs, and organizations that will end the HIV epidemic. The National Learning Community offers HIV CBO mid- to senior-level managers a catalog of short, self-paced courses designed by and for CBO managers, a virtual, cohort-based Creative Problem-Solving Intensive, and access to an exclusive online community of peers, coaches, and mentors in the HIV prevention workforce.
CDC TRAIN is an online learning management system providing access to training opportunities, many of which include continuing education credit. When you sign up for a free account, you can search for high-impact HIV prevention (HIP) training courses to meet your professional development needs, and complete the continually accessible electronic learning modules under your own direction and pace.

CDC’s National Network of STD Clinical Prevention Training Centers (NNPTC) improves the capacity of providers, clinical sites, and healthcare systems to employ state-of-the-art knowledge and resources to diagnose, manage, treat, and counsel individuals with/at-risk for STDs in order to reduce morbidity and improve sexual health on individual, local, and national levels. The NNPTCs develop, disseminate, and evaluate training and training assistance to improve STD care at the clinical provider, healthcare organization, and system levels.
The AIDS Education and Training Center (AETC) Program is the training arm of HRSA’s Ryan White HIV/AIDS Program.
