Who is it for ?
Infection control and prevention is relevant to numerous sectors including food preparation and health and social care and medical services, and is of major concern in hospitals and other health care settings. It is the responsibility of everyone who works in, or visits, such environments to ensure that the spread of infection is avoided. This accreditation infection control training course is ideal for health and social care staff who wish to gain an understanding of the causes of infection and how these can be managed and controlled. Health and social care staff who successfully complete this nationally recognised distance learning infection control training course in infection control will be awarded the Level 2 Award in the Prevention and Control of Infection (NCFE) qualification.
The Level 2 Award in the Prevention and Control of Infection training course is designed to raise awareness of infection control legislation and policies. During this infection control training course learners will look at the methods of cleaning and waste disposal that help prevent the spread of infection, along with the personal protective equipment they should use for their own safety, thus ensuring the prevention and control of infections. This knowledge will be underpinned by an increased understanding of the causes of infections, the conditions in which infections thrive and the ways that infections can be spread within health and social care settings.
The distance learning training course consists of three mandatory units that allow the learners to obtain the Level 2 Award in Infection Prevention and Control:
