As of June 11, 2020, Washington state two, four, and seven hour HIV/AIDS training is no longer required. 

Engrossed Substitute House Bill (ESHB) 1551 (Chapter 76, Laws of 2020) repealed statutes concerning AIDS education and training for emergency medical personnel, health professionals, and health care facility employees. In support of ESHB 1551, the Department of Health repealed AIDS education and training requirements for professions and facilities under the Secretary's authority.

ESHB 1551 added a definition of Bloodborne Pathogen in RCW 70.24.017 to include HIV, Hepatitis B, and Hepatitis C and eliminated outdated and duplicative statutory requirements for HIV/AIDS occupational exposure education and training for health care professionals and certain categories of employees.

Bloodborne Pathogen (BBP) Training remains required under Chapter 296-823 WAC adopted by the Department of Labor and Industries. Training conducted in compliance with this rule meets the curriculum requirements for HIV/AIDS training. Contact your employer or the Washington State Department of Labor and Industries for more information and training options.

We no Longer offer the Washington Sate HIV/AIDS training due to the June 11, 2020 changes.

We provide the Blood Borne Pathogen certification
