Certificate in Infection Prevention and Control

About the Course

Duration: 29 minutes (approx.)

All workplaces have a duty to comply with their legal requirements for the prevention and control of infection falling under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 and its associated regulations. It is crucial that employees are able to recognise, follow and implement the correct procedures to prevent or control infection, particularly with the advent of the COVID-19 pandemic.

This essential CPD course provides you with the core content you need to ensure you are equipped to prevent and limit the spread of infection and illness in the workplace and understand the importance of maintaining hygiene standards at work.

Split into bite-size modules, the training has been designed to provide maximum learning potential in the leanest, most cost-effective and time-efficient manner. It has been produced in high-quality remote video CPD format, which is accessible on any device, anytime, anywhere.

Delivered by qualified emergency medical technician Samantha Kendall, the course has been divided into five modules with a knowledge assessment at the end to help you evidence your learning.

Designed in line with the following policies:

  • COVID-19: Infection Prevention and Control (IPC) Regulations 2020
  • Health and Social Care Act 2008
  • The Public Health (Infectious Diseases) Regulations 1988
