AHCA/NCAL’s Infection Preventionist Training is Key to Effective Infection Prevention Leadership

Programs and Resources
​AHCA/NCAL’s expanded version of its popular Infection Preventionist Specialized Training (IPCO Version 2) online training includes COVID-19 bonus content. The training also teaches leaders how to implement and maintain a facility-wide infection prevention culture.

IPCO Version 2 is designed to train nursing facility Infection Preventionists and is approved for 25 ANCC contact hours.The online course is also 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 and how to create a facility-wide infection prevention culture. 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 educate@ahca.org with their name and facility contact information.
