This course is designed as a train-the-trainer program and contains both awareness and operations level components. Module I is an awareness level course designed for a wide audience. This module focuses on a basic overview of hazardous materials, identifying a contaminated patient, controlling the scene and activating the hospital’s response plan. The operations modules II-IV are designed for hospital personnel who are part of a decontamination team and will be involved in decontaminating patients. These modules teach hospital personnel how to don and doff Level C PPE and how to safely and effectively decontaminate patients who present at the ED. This course is designed specifically to prepare the participant to perform decontamination within a health care setting. It is NOT designed to teach decontamination within the “hot zone.”
Important Note for Operations Level Attendees
You will not receive your Certificate of Attendance if you do not bring a set of PPE to demonstrate. PPE includes a hazmat suit, respirator, gloves and boots.
