Bloodborne Pathogens

COURSE AUTHOR(S)

 

COURSE SUMMARY

An ever-increasing number of people are infected with Bloodborne pathogens like hepatitis each year. Individuals who have been incarcerated are at greater risk for infection, and this is a population that law enforcement officers frequently come into contact with. Law Enforcement and Corrections Officers also may encounter hypodermic needles, drug paraphernalia, and combative subjects, bringing them within close proximity to blood and bodily fluids. This course teaches officers in methods and practices to keep themselves and their coworkers from becoming infected with a Bloodborne pathogen such as hepatitis or HIV.

Each online course is developed from an 8-hour classroom-based curriculum. The average length of our online courses is 90 to 120 minutes.
