About this toolkit

Training is essential for health care providers to gain proficiency in the administration and interpretation of the TB skin test.

The TB skin test should be placed (administered) and read by a designated, trained health care provider. Consult with your state and local public health authorities to determine who can place and read TB skin tests in your state.
