Education and Training

The Healthcare Associated Infections (HAI) Program aims to reduce preventable infections across Idaho by offering free and accessible education on infection control principles and protocols.

Training opportunities

The HAI Program offers infection control education for a variety of audiences and topics to reduce the risk of infections for individuals receiving care in Idaho. Infection control education is essential for healthcare workers in order to keep themselves, their patients, their residents and their communities safe. 

Trainings are free and cover a wide range of topics and learning formats. The education can be adapted for people of different backgrounds and professions. No matter your staff preference or facility type, we have a training for you. We can help you meet staff education requirements.
