SARS-COV-2 antigen rapid diagnostic tests are an alternative option for diagnosing active SARS-CoV-2 infection through detection of viral proteins. Rapid antigen tests revolutionize the response to COVID-19 by providing accurate test results in 10 to 20 minutes instead of days, allowing tests to be done at point of care, and dramatically lowering the price of the tests. Proper training on the safe use and implementation of antigen tests is vital to ensuring quality testing. A comprehensive training package around safety, sample collection, testing, reporting and management of antigen tests can be found below. The training package includes facilitators’ guides for master trainers and trainers, training presentations, and supplementary materials to aid in the delivery of this training.
