Infection Control

Infection Control Training is a mandated training program for any employee, self-employed person, or safety representative who may be exposed to blood or other body fluids. This course is available online, can be done remotely or we can offer face to face training.

This course is designed to meet the requirements and recommendations of the HSE, NHS and medical professionals. infection control training is required in other industries outside the medical world.

The course covers many different subjects from the types of infection, workplace practices, personal protective equipment (PPE) and other relevant subjects all in an easy to watch and understand video format.

If you require a face to face course, we can adapt this course to your requirements and add other courses like Basic Life Support and teach them both on the same day.

With all our courses, we endeavour to keep up to date and this course is no exception. 

We will keep this course updated with the latest news on Corona Virus/COVID 19.
