The next iteration of the IPC online course will begin September 3rd and will end in December 16, 2014. This improved course has been redesigned to fit into a 4 month time frame. This course will meet all the IPAC (Infection Prevention and Control Canada--formerly Community and Hospital Infection Control Association) standards, as well as the most current pedagogical best practices.
The curriculum is developed in consideration of the Certification Board of Infection Control and Epidemiology's (CBIC) Examination Content Outline available at: http://cbic.org/certification/candidate-handbook/online-handbook/preparing-for-the-examination#outline
