Infection Control
OLQA & EDL Diploma
____________________________________________________

A distance learning course is the ideal way to gain a Professional Diploma in Infection Control. Whether you're looking to go on to further education, improve your job prospects or expand your knowledge, distance learning Diploma in Infection Control is a flexible and convenient course, which allows you to comprehensively prepare for an exam or career through home study. What's more, because the distance learning Professional Diploma in Infection Control course is a fully comprehensive course, no prior knowledge is required.

This diploma course is aimed at those who are seeking to establish a career which involves infection control, health care workers, managers involved in care settings, or those who may be carers themselves and wish to understand the principles and practice of infection control.

There are few jobs or personal situations where we are not expected to engage in some kind of infection control. It is a subject and related activity which is no longer just confined to the hospital or medical domain. Even in our own homes we are now expected to have knowledge of antibacterial products, processes and practices.

Increasing standards required for public premises also means that many individuals will be expected to manage infection control protocols and processes within their place of employment (for example schools, pubs, restaurants and even offices). The benefits of effective infection control are unquestionable in terms of wellbeing and the prevention of spread. We only have to think about influenza and threats of pandemics to realise the speed and extent of infections when they take hold.
