Calendar Aug 31, 2022 at 10 am

This course is unique in providing funeral specific bloodborne pathogen training, differentiating it from generalized courses in BBP typically available to licensed embalmers/directors and those seeking initial licensure requirements. Although this course is specialized to meet or exceed the licensure needs of those working in a post-mortem setting, all content is relevant and pertinent to anti-mortem care and protection as well. The course covers: guidelines, precautions, infection control program elements, preventing transmission, hygiene, PPE use, and an in-depth approach to infectious agents.
