AHCA/NCAL’s Infection Preventionist Training is Important for LTC Administrators and Directors Too Programs and Resources Published:November 24, 2020 Dave Kyllo Page ContentAHCA/NCAL’s expanded version of its popular Infection Preventionist Specialized Training (IPCO Version 2) online training now includes COVID-19 bonus content. IPCO Version 2 is designed to train nursing facility Infection Preventionists and is approved for 25 ANCC contact hours. The online course is also now approved for 22 NAB CEUs for Administrators. AHCA/NCAL recognizes Administrators will not serve as designated Infection Preventionists but recommends that Administrators consider taking the course to gain a deeper understanding of infection prevention and control in facility operations. The training is also highly recommended for assisted living communities because they care for a similar population with similar infection risks. The registration fee is $450 for AHCA/NCAL members and $650 for non-members. Members will need to login with their AHCA/NCAL usernames and passwords to register for IPCO Version 2. For help obtaining AHCA/NCAL usernames and passwords, members should e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org with their name and facility contact information.
