Infection control training

Infection control training

Are you working in an environment that requires you to have infection control training?

Infection prevention and control measures aim to ensure the protection of those who might be vulnerable to acquiring an infection…. Ok but why is this important?

Well every year at least 300,000 people develop a Health Care Associated Infection.

This has a huge impact on the patient, the staff and the institution it occurs in.

Whereas if there is good infection prevention and control, patients will have better health and more independence.

Is this the right infection control training for you?

This infection control online training course will start by defining infection prevention and control and explaining the impact of good and bad infection control.

It then goes into detail about, the legislation that applies to infection control, the different types of microorganisms, how bacteria are transmitted, the chain of infection, and much more.

What our students say

Wonderful course, very easy to follow. Got me up to speed in no time at all on the basics of fire safety. Would recommend to others wishing to learn more about the basic principles of fire safety in the workplace.

I enjoyed this course and found the interactive videos easy to follow.  The course content is well thought out and provided lots of useful information.  I passed each module with flying colours and feel I now understand the basics when it comes to asbestos awareness.  Would highly recommend this online course.

The level 1 food safety for catering course was easy to follow and I learned a lot.  I enjoyed the way the course was delivered and how it was broken down into small modules, which made it easier to learn.  I have since completed level 2 food safety too.
