What’s in the Infectious Disease Training & Certification Course?

Our Infectious Diseases training course is regulation compliant, and our online version fulfills classroom training requirements. Each class contains sections on Transmission, Protection from Disease, and more.

During this training, we will be taking a look at the specific procedures and tasks that are required of someone who is striving to protect themselves and others from infectious diseases. As part of this training, you will learn the importance of proper personal hygiene and respiratory etiquette. We will also discuss the various ways in which a disease can be transmitted. Finally, we will emphasize the necessity to break the chain of infection through the use of proper cleaning and sanitation procedures, PPE, and precautions when exposed to disease-spreading insects.

This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam as required by Canada.

Though you will still need to familiarize yourself with all other applicable federal, state, and local standards, this training encompasses the following laws and regulations:

Canada Standards

  • Public Health Agency of Canada Disease Prevention & Control Guidelines

Why do I need a Infectious Disease Training & Certification

In line with regulations, those in many workplaces must receive training on infectious disease prevention prior to beginning work. Requirements for refresher training related to forklifts or other processes are very specific. Most other topics don’t have such specific requirements, but it’s wise to follow the same guidelines.

When it comes to refresher training, the standards in some instances (like forklifts) are very specific: operators must be re-evaluated every three years to see if they are still competent to operate the equipment. Best practices say to apply this same rule to all topics. A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer but should include a written and practical examination that prove continued competency.

Infectious Disease Training & Certification FAQs

What is an infectious disease?

Infectious diseases are illnesses caused by infectious microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, parasites, and even sometimes fungi. These diseases are often spread between persons, either directly or indirectly, and can sometimes even be spread by animals and insects.

Are viruses diseases?

Viruses are tiny germs that can cause many infectious diseases like the common cold, influenza, and others. They can also be the cause of more severe illnesses like HIV/AIDS, smallpox, and Ebola.

How does COVID-19 spread?

There are a few ways that COVID-19 can spread. The first is by touching an object or surface that has the virus on it and then touching your mouth, nose, or even your eyes. For the most part, however, COVID-19 is spread from one person to another through respiratory droplets when a person coughs, sneezes, or even talks too closely to another.

Does wearing a mask prevent the transmission of disease?

While masks may not be effective against every disease, they can help to prevent the spread of some diseases that are passed through respiratory droplets. By covering up your mouth or nose, you are reducing the risk of the disease leaving or entering into your body through these areas. Always consult your doctor before deciding to wear a mask if you have concerns or a medical condition that may make the wearing of a mask for a long period of time dangerous.
