The Covid-19 pandemic reinforced the importance of infection prevention and control. This regulated and nationally recognised qualification provides learners with the opportunity to develop their knowledge of the principles of infection prevention and control, and how best to protect those around them.

Over a half day period, learners will develop a greater understanding of the principles of infection prevention and control.
