Infection Control and Prevention

Through a partnership with the Delaware Division of Public Health, Delaware Tech is pleased to offer training related to infection prevention and control. This project is funded through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Project Firstline, a comprehensive infection control program designed to help prevent the spread of infectious diseases in U.S. healthcare settings. The content is designed so that regardless of a healthcare worker’s previous training or educational background they can understand and confidently apply the infection control principles and protocols necessary to protect themselves, their facility, their family, and their community from infectious disease threats, such as COVID-19.
