Certificate in the Principles of the Prevention & Control of Infection in Health Care Settings

This course is suitable for individuals who work in or would like to work in clinical settings.

It's designed for those who are currently working or would like to work within the health and social care sector, and provides knowledge that may be applied to a wide range of job roles within health and social care settings.

This qualification does not infer competence of the work role, but can be used to support the underpinning knowledge and understanding needed for those working to prevent and control infection in Health care settings.

At the beginning of the course you will attend an induction where you will be issued with all of the learning resources required to work independently to complete your course workbooks.

You will be allocated a tutor who will be available throughout the duration of your studies. You will be able to contact them by telephone or email should you need any help or advice at any point. Your tutor will also mark your workbooks and provide written feedback.

Your tutor may require additional information for some of your answers. If this is the case, they will contact you by email or telephone and ask you to provide the required information in a professional discussion. If there are more than 5 questions in a Unit that require further development, you will be asked to make a re-submission.

When all workbooks meet the required outcomes and standard, they will be submitted for Internal Moderation prior to Certification.
