Houston Health Department
Training Course Registration Procedures 2013
The Bureau of HIV/STD & Viral Hepatitis Prevention will utilize an online registration system for all training courses beginning January 2013. The online registration is located at HoustonPrevention.com. Registration must be submitted three business days prior to the date of the training course. The online registration will be the only option in registering for courses from this point forward. The facilitators will no longer accept walk-ins for any training session. Upon completion of registration, participants will receive a confirmation email that outlines the training course, time, date, location and information about the course.
The Training Calendar will continue to include dates, times and location for training listed on the Calendar. The trainings offered will include those required by Contractor Staff, Capacity Building courses, and career development courses that should be taken on an ongoing basis to enhance one’s professional experience working in the HIV/AIDS/STDs arena. The Training Unit also plans to collaborate with other agencies that offer prevention course trainings and capacity building opportunities such as AIDS Project Los Angeles, Shared Action, National Network of STD/HIV Prevention Training Centers, and EffectiveInterventions.org to offer a variety of training courses.For the full bureau Calendar including meeting dates for each of the HDHHS Task Forces and the Prevention Planning Group, Click Here
Arriving Late to Training Session
Each training session has a start time and an end time. It is imperative that each training session begin at the specified time to ensure coverage of all training materials. Training session times are outlined on the course registration page and in the confirmation email registrants will receive. Individuals arriving more than 15 minutes after the session begins will be marked by the instructor as a 'No Show' and will need to register for the next available training course. No exceptions, excluding inclement weather (unpleasant weather which is stormy, rainy, or snowy) conditions.
Registrants needing to cancel their individual registrations must do so through HoustonPrevention.com three days prior to the session. If a cancellation is required after this cut off date, registrants will need to notify the Training/Capacity Building Unit Staff of any cancellations at least 24 hours prior to the training course date.
At the end of each training course session, registrants will be asked to complete a short evaluation on the training course.
Registrants must complete the evaluation form for the respective training course to obtain a Certificate of Completion/Attendance.
