Infection Control Training
The Health Care-Associated Infections Prevention Program of the Florida Department of Health has five separate web-based training modules on Infection Control, specifically created for facility nursing staff members in acute care hospitals, ambulatory care, and nursing homes. These trainings are available on demand, at your convenience, and at no charge. Each will satisfy one hour of continuing education units. Please follow the directions below to access the training.
The training modules are available on the TRAIN Florida website, using Google Chrome at fl.train.org. If you do not have an account, you can create an account. After agreeing to TRAIN policies, you will need to fill out the Required Fields on the following page. You will come to a page that will ask for your professional license.

You can find the courses by searching for “FDOH Infection Control.” You may select the class you want to take separately, or in a series by selecting the infection control series. With the series, you will take a brief Introduction course that will explain the course directions, the class “An Overview of Infection Control,” and select one course from the remaining classes dependent on your position and type of facility.
