The certificate series has the following elements:

  • In-person event: EPI® 101 for LTC
    EPI 101® for LTC takes the content from our full EPI® 101 class and tailors it to the needs of the long-term care worker. The result is a 2-day class that teaches the building blocks of infection prevention and control knowledge.
  • Online classes: 
    After taking EPI® 101, certificate learners spend time on a suite of online classes that build depth of knowledge on some topics (e.g., diseases that are important to know), cover specific concerns (e.g., employee health and vaccination of long-term care workers), and recent trends in long-term care (e.g., use of UV light in long-term care facilities).
  • In-person event: EPI® 102 for LTC
    Like the EPI® 101 for LTC class, EPI® 102 for LTC tailors content from the full EPI® 102 class to the long-term care setting in an intense 2-day class that advances the infection prevention and control knowledge of attendees.
  • Certificate exam: 
    After attending the two in-person classes and going through all the online education, you will take an exam that has questions from all the content. If you score 75% or better on the exam, you will earn the “APIC Certificate of Infection Prevention Training. (You will have three chances to score 75%.)
 
Learners who attend the in-person EPI 101® for Long-Term Care and EPI 102® for Long-Term Care classes and complete all of the online education will receive between 35 – 40 CEUs.
