AHP Trainings for

Outreach Workers and Their Supervisors

AHP offers three trainings to support California State Office of AIDS-funded outreach work—agencies that receive funding for Targeted Prevention Activities (TPA) and NIGHT Program Services. The trainings focus, in particular, on the process of accessing clients for HIV-related risk and, if appropriate, linking them to HIV counseling and testing. The training program includes a three-day live training for new outreach workers (required), an online training for existing community health workers (required), and an online training for outreach supervisors (recommended).
