HIV Certification Training

Michigan law requires that HIV/AIDS Prevention be taught once a year at every building level (elementary, middle, high school). All teachers who teach K-12 students about HIV/AIDS are required to complete HIV Certification training in order to be qualified to teach this content. Training in both HIV/AIDS and Other STI Prevention and Sexuality Education/Reproductive Health are offered through the Regional School Health Coordinator that serves the district. The MDE recommends that teachers of HIV/AIDS and Other STI Prevention and sexuality education receive a minimum of six clock-hours of professional development in sexuality education content, teaching methods, and Michigan laws every 3 years.
