Infection Control and Prevention
Germs are everywhere – while they’re often harmless, they can be deadly. So, we need to understand what we can do to prevent them from spreading as much as we can. In this course, we explore how different types of germ can affect us when in our bodies, and how we can keep ourselves safe, from having good hand hygiene to using the correct PPE.
It doesn’t matter if you work in a café, construction site or care setting, this course is suitable for all adults, and will teach you the basics around preventing and controlling infection so that you can keep yourself and others safe.
After completing this course, you will understand:
- The causes of disease and the different types of germ (including Coronavirus)
