4Cs Launches Non-Credit Course on Infection Control, Preventing COVID-19

May 26, 2020

The Center for Corporate and Professional Education (CCAPE) at Cape Cod Community College is hosting a monthly, online non-credit course designed to help local businesses and organizations better understand the logistics of reopening during the Coronavirus pandemic. The course, called “Infection Control and Prevention of COVID-19,” is offered monthly and is conducted by Daniel Shea, MPH, LFD, CCSP, a professor with extensive background in adult education and public health.

“Infection Control and Prevention of COVID-19” is designed for community members or any organization that works with the public, including churches, gyms, and restaurants. It is offered remotely as an instructor-led, live stream webinar. The course covers standards for both the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) and the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) through live, web-based lecture. Professor Shea provides workplace-specific infection control and blood borne pathogen training and discusses COVID-19 guidelines, preventing transmissions, hygiene, and usage of personal protective equipment (PPE).

“Now more than ever, our College is here for our community,” said John Cox, President of Cape Cod Community College. “As we prepare for the rest of our courses being delivered in online, remote, or hybrid formats for the rest of 2020, we are also dedicated to helping our region safely begin to recover and reopen. Our local economy – especially during the Summer months – relies heavily on our amazing local businesses. With this course now available, we hope to help those businesses get back on their feet so they can continue to thrive.”

The “Infection Control and Prevention of COVID-19” course is $49 to register, with sessions scheduled monthly. To register or to learn more, contact the Center for Corporate and Professional Education at Cape Cod Community College at 508.375.5013 or e-mail: workforce@capecod.edu.
