Welcome to The Mandatory Training Group's Care Certificate Standard 15 - Infection Prevention and Control online course. All our online training courses, programmes and qualifications are accredited by the CPD Certification Service (CPDUK).

Infection prevention and control in the workplace aims to prevent pathogens from being passed from one person to another. The foundation of good infection control is to assume that everyone is potentially infectious.

By completing this standard, healthcare workers gain knowledge about the causes of infection and the importance of practising good hygiene, such as proper handwashing techniques. They also learn the importance of using Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and following agreed ways of working to prevent the spread of infections.
