Our Infection Prevention and Control online (e-Learning) course teaches a set of practices designed to limit or eliminate the transmission of infections in companies, organizations, or simply at home. All companies should adopt infection control compliance programs to ensure that individual staff and the organization as a whole are adhering to industry standards governing infection prevention and control. These training and compliance programs help ensure that all the employees are informed about what infections are, the dangers associated with them, how they are transmitted, and how to prevent and eliminate them.
