About this course

This online infection control training course is perfect for nurses, carers, dentists, and any health care personnel. Having a basic understanding of infection control within the healthcare sector, and more importantly in care homes, can massively reduce the risk of spreading. It is vital to understand the standard precautions for infection control, how an infection spreads and who is at risk in order to reduce the impact of an outbreak. Infection Control training can protect your staff and your service users from the potential presence of pathogens and help control and prevent a pathogen from spreading.

Our Infection Control certificate is accredited by the Continuing Professional Development (CPD) and once the online course has been completed, the certificate will be awarded and can be used to provide evidence for compliance.
