Hamlets Training Centre is pleased to include this E-learning course which is designed by the Highfield Awarding Body for Compliance to help you and your business understand how to prevent and control infection and why it is important to do so.

Learn how your own health and hygiene could pose a risk to people that you care and support for and understand the procedures that should be followed to reduce risks when dealing with hazardous spills, waste and linen.
Finally, you will learn about the legal requirements relating to infection prevention and control, and your and other people’s responsibilities.

What is Infection Prevention and Control?
Infection Prevention and Control is a practical solution, based on a scientific approach, to prevent the harm caused by infection to both patients and health workers. Infections and infectious diseases are a major cause of illness and death. Infectious diseases can spread. As with all illnesses, prevention is better than cure.
Who is it aimed at?
Any employee or manager working within an environment where there is risk of infection. The course may be particularly useful for healthcare professionals and adult care workers and may be particularly useful for apprentices. The course can be used as a stand-alone module or as part of an induction programme.
No prior knowledge needed.
20 to 40 minutes.
How it works
Our e-learning is available to use on multiple platforms such as tablets, PCs and laptops. All you need is an internet connection. Learners simply log on to the Highfield Learner Management System (LMS) and work their way through the course, along with the scenarios that provide them with real-life context.
Learners are assessed at the end of the course by multiple-choice questions.
Learners will receive a Highfield e-learning completion certificate, which is downloadable upon successfully finishing the course.
Benefits of E-learning
The use of interactive quizzes and simulation tasks, based on realistic scenarios from genuine workplace environments, means E-Learners can more readily acquire skills and knowledge meaningful to their own work-based practices.
E-Learning can accommodate many different learning styles and can engage the learner via a range of rich and stimulating approaches, which are more relevant to the subject requirements, than can often be achieved in normal classroom-based learning.
Key elements of our e-learning courses are:
- interactive exercises/gaming
- media-rich content
- interactive 3D scenarios
- content provided by market leading experts
- relevant photography and illustrations
- multi-generational content and style
