This training will be conducted by the CDPH team for hands-on training for BinaxNOW Antigen Testing. Please forward this invite to all the staff members being trained. This training will only be offered on Wednesdays at 10 am and 3 pm. If you would prefer 3 pm, copy and past this link into your web page header.
**Please be prepared and signed in before the start time. The training will begin promptly and those that try to join in late will not be allowed to participate.**
To participate in this training, please ensure the following:
• Complete all the trainings/videos outlined in the playbook. You will find the video links in your meeting confirmation email.
• Trainees will be required to complete a negative control and a positive control. For the training, each trainee should be given 1 box of 40 tests which includes 40 Binax test cards, 40 swabs, 1 positive control swab, and 1 reagent bottle (everyone will have their own reagent bottle). The reagent bottle is needed to be able to run the test.
(After the training, the boxes of tests should be collected by the schools and will be used later to test the students and staff).
• Also, please make sure that your camera’s are working so the trainers can see that the test runs successfully.
If you are screen sharing, each participant does not need to individually register for the training. However, each participant will have to take their own quiz AFTER the training is COMPLETE.
If you have any questions, please feel free to email/call me.
