There are many people working in a paid or voluntary role who may be at risk of contracting or spreading infection due to the nature of their job. Infection control is essential knowledge for all those working in any hospital, nursing and care settings. It is also often now considered relevant for those working in other types of group settings where there may be risks of infection spreading such as prisons, schools and hostels.
There are many reasons why we must try to control the spread of infection. Not least is our legal responsibility with the duty of care for our patients/clients. The Control of Infection and Contamination Programme is designed to complement the work you carry out in the work place by supporting your practice with underpinning knowledge, whether you are an experienced healthcare worker or new to the role.
You will be provided with comprehensive materials designed to provide you with everything required to complete your course of study. You will have your own personal tutor helping you with your course work and with any questions you may have. Plus you can contact our Student Advisors by email or phone for all the practical advice you may need – so we really are with you 100%.
What's more, you'll have access to the online student portal, where you can interact with other students, browse our resource library and manage your account.
Completing a series of tutor marked assignments together with an end of course multi-choice questionnaire will lead you to the highly acclaimed Ascentis Certificate in Prevention and Control of Infection Qualification.
When you have completed the programme, your tutor needs to verify that you have worked through all parts of any Workbooks, Activities and Exercises successfully.
Upon verification of the activities, exercises and assignments, a nationally recognised certificate will be awarded by Ascentis as confirmation that your written work has met all of the learning outcomes and assessment criteria for the programme.
We recommended you spend approximately 150 hours of your time studying for the course name. The pace of study is completely up to you. To give an example, if you dedicate 3 hours a week to the course it would take you a year to complete but if you could spare 6 hours a week you could complete it in six months.
Get started today, and you can earn your Level 2 Ascentis Award in the Prevention and Control of Infection in as little as six months, or take up to a year, if you prefer – the choice is yours.
