About this Course

This course on infection control is designed for anyone who works in a healthcare setting where they may be exposed to infectious viruses like Hepatitis B, HIV, or COVID-19.

Not a healthcare worker? You might be better off with our Preparing the Workplace for COVID-19 course.

In this course, we'll review the infection control guidelines issued in the AAHA 2018 Infection Control Syllabus. We'll also discuss the current CDC recommendations on how to handle COVID-19 in a healthcare setting, including patients with or suspected to have COVID-19.   

You'll learn how to protect yourself, your fellow healthcare workers, and your patients from transmission of infectious pathogens.  

We'll provide a certificate of completion for your records once you pass the course, and you'll earn 0.2 IACET-approved CEUs.
