This basic infection control course is designed for people who do not work in the healthcare sector but are still at risk from coming into contact with body fluid that could pose a risk.  There are many businesses, occupations, schools and hobbies, that could put people at risk of contracting an infection. If you are working in the healthcare sector, you will need our healthcare infection control course or dental infection control.  

We also offer specific infection control courses to cater to healthcare professionals, or dentists, or tattoo artists, body piercers and others.
