CCTC offering online contact tracing and infection control course

LLCC’s Capital City Training Center in partnership with CareerStep is offering an online training course on contact tracing and infection control.

The course covers all CDC-recommended training elements required to successfully identify patients who have come in close contact with a particular virus or contagion. Important breach avoidance strategies will be discussed, and the main steps involved in the contact tracing process will be outlined. Students will learn HIPAA basics, contact tracing protocols and COVID-19 guidelines.

“Contact tracing is a popular method of containment that has helped flatten the curve of COVID-19, and there is a need for more qualified health care professionals with the proper training,” says Paula Luebbert, assistant vice president, corporate/government training and economic development at LLCC.

The cost for the course is $699. Upon successful completion, the student will receive a certificate from 4MedPlus/CareerStep.
