Are you a health care professional? Do you need to be certified? The Mississippi State Department of Health offers tuberculosis continuing education in locations statewide.
A review of the following Glossary and Mantoux chart is strongly recommended prior to attending class.
Pre-registration at least 14 days in advance is required to attend a session. Registration is complete on receipt of payment.
Sessions are scheduled throughout the state from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. several times each month. Sign-in begins at 8:00 am and instruction begins promptly at 8:30 am. Late arrivals are not admitted after instruction begins.
Course completion requires demonstration of proficiency in correctly administering and reading a tuberculin skin test and passing a 50 question knowledge assessment with a minimum score of 80. Scoring below 65 is an automatic failure and requires repeating the course. One knowledge assessment re-challenge test will be offered the same day for individuals scoring between 65 and 80. A minimum score of 80 is also required for the re-challenge. Any score below 80 is a failure and requires repeating the course.
If you have earned a training certificate and need a duplicate or replacement copy of your certificate, you can request a replacement online, or by mail.
