The Infection Control Basics course has been updated and is now the BC Infection Control and Hand Hygiene Module. This course teaches the basic principles on infection control within the health care system, sharps management, hand hygiene, blood and body fluid exposure and clean up, the proper use of personal protective equipment and isolation precautions.  The course is appropriate for all health care professionals, and takes between 25-45 minutes, including the test.

The training module is hosted on the PHSA Learning Hub, where you can track your courses and print a certificate after completion. Anyone (from any health authority, or from any non-affiliated site) can create an account on the Learning Hub; all you need to provide is your name and an email address. You can find instructions on how to create an account here. Please note: for any issues with your LearningHub account, including creating/updating your account, completing the modules, and/or printing your certificate, please contact learninghubadmin@phsa.ca, not PICNet. Thanks!

Please note: If any of the courses below are part of your mandatory training, and your health authority needs confirmation that you have completed these courses, then users from Vancouver Coastal Health, Providence Health Care, Vancouver Island Health Authority, and Fraser Health must take this course through their health authority’s online learning system.
