The APIC certificate program gathers baseline IPC content in one series and includes the following required components:
EPI® 101 for LTC is a tailored version of APIC’s gold standard EPI 101 course, focusing on the building blocks of infection prevention and control knowledge. Topics include:
o State and federal regulations for infection prevention and control
o Basics of epidemiology and microbiology
o Environmental services’ roles in infection prevention
· After taking EPI 101, certificate learners spend time on a suite of three online courses:
o Microbiology 101 for Infection Preventionists
o Basic Statistics for Infection Preventionists
o Effectively Using Data
· Like EPI 101 for LTC, EPI® 102 for LTC tailors content from the original EPI 102 class to the long-term care setting in an intensive, 2-day training that advances the infection prevention and control knowledge of attendees. Topics include:
o What to watch for and how to manage an outbreak
o Proper cleaning and disinfection in long-term care settings
After attending the two in-person classes and completing the online education, learners will take an exam with questions covering all of the content. Learners with a score 75% or better on the exam will earn the “APIC Certificate of Infection Prevention Training.” Note: Learners will have three chances to score 75%.
