AHCA Infection Preventionist Specialized Training (IPCO) is Live!

The design and development of this training was prompted by the new CMS requirement for all centers to have a designated Infection Preventionist with specialized training. This training is an on-line, self-study program on ahcancalED with 23 hours of learning. The online program consists of nine modules each focusing on specific components of infection prevention and control. The course includes online lectures, case studies and interactive components taught by an array of experts from around the country. Participants will have the opportunity to receive a certificate of specialized training and 23 ANCC Contact Hours upon successfully completing AHCA's IPCO program.

The training is available to both AHCA members and non-members. The registration fee is $450 for AHCA members and $650 for non-members. Payment and registration is made online in ahcancalED. To access ahcancalED, an individual needs their own user login to the AHCA website. The attached flyer provides additional details. Please contact educate@ahca.orgwith any questions.
