Training for Infection Prevention & Control
Fully-funded infection control training
There's no doubt that COVID-19 has changed the way we work, but when it comes to keeping people safe, it's health care and community service workers that are most in need of high-quality, up-to-date training.
Our infection control unit is designed to help community service workers gain the knowledge and skills they need to effectively implement practical infection prevention and control policies and procedures.
Why study this unit?
We understand that no two workplaces are the same, which is why we base our content on current health advice and tailor it to your industry.
Students who enrol in this course will have access to a dedicated trainer who has recent real-world experience implementing infection prevention and control procedures. Once completed, this unit can also be used as a credit towards a higher qualification like the Certificate III in Individual Support (CHC33015).
