Infectious Disease Train the Trainer Certification

Regulating organizations typically want you to have experience and training. While we travel the country certifying trainers, the online training course is an easy and cost-effective way to help employers make the designation by offering the required training.

These kits come with everything you need to put on your own training in-house. Everything can be reused and customized as needed to make it fit your specific situation.
The kit contains all of the files we use when we go on-site to train operators and trainers (Main PowerPoint presentation, student manual files, exams and answer keys, safety poster files, standards, certificate and wallet card templates, hundreds of accident profiles which can be used for toolbox meetings, the classroom forms you need, etc.).
We send our trainers all over the country training both operators and trainers. And even though OSHA does not require a train-the-trainer certification (they are more interested in what topics are being trained on), many companies and individuals feel more comfortable going through the trainer program from a well-established, industry-recognized training company like us. But it doesn’t always make sense financially for companies. That is why we’ve created the option to get certified online. If you are comfortable training and comfortable with the equipment, you can simply purchase the online trainer course, get your certificate and training kit, and start training.

Why Do I Need Workplace Infectious / Contagious Diseases Training?
In line with regulations, those in many workplaces must receive training on infectious disease prevention prior to beginning work. Requirements for refresher training are very specific for some industries, while other industries do not have such specific requirements.
When it comes to refresher training, the standards are often very specific. Some industries require employees to be re-evaluated every three years. Best practices say to apply this same rule to all topics. A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer but should include a written and practical examination that proves continued competency.
Workplace Infectious / Contagious Diseases Frequently Asked Questions
What is an infectious disease?
Infectious diseases are illnesses caused by infectious microorganisms like bacteria, viruses, parasites, and even fungi. These diseases are often spread between persons, either directly or indirectly, and can sometimes even be spread by animals and insects.
Are viruses diseases?
Viruses are tiny germs that can cause many infectious diseases like the common cold, influenza, and others. They can also be the cause of more severe illnesses like HIV/AIDS, smallpox, and Ebola.
How does COVID-19 spread?
There are a few ways that COVID-19 can spread. The first is by touching an object or surface that has the virus on it and then touching your mouth, nose, or even your eyes. For the most part, however, COVID-19 is spread from one person to another through respiratory droplets when a person coughs, sneezes, or even talks too closely to another person.
Does wearing a mask prevent the transmission of disease?
While masks may not be effective against every disease, they can help to prevent the spread of some diseases that are passed through respiratory droplets. By covering up your mouth or nose, you are reducing the risk of the disease leaving or entering into your body through these areas. Always consult your doctor before deciding to wear a mask if you have concerns or a medical condition that may make the wearing of a mask for a long period of time dangerous.
