TCC offers new online HIV/AIDS and bloodborne pathogens course

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (July 2, 2013) – Tallahassee Community College’s Division of Workforce Development is offering a new HIV/AIDS and bloodborne pathogens course for those that offer direct care for Persons with Disabilities (APD) and other human service workers.

The course is designed to teach participants about a variety of bloodborne pathogens, modes of infection, safety procedures to be observed when dealing with possible bloodborne pathogens, how to counsel people infected with bloodborne pathogens and more. The self-paced online course is offered at $25.

The course can also provide a foundation of knowledge related to HIV and bloodborne pathogens to other occupations such as police officers, correctional officers, mental health workers, non-medical care takers and others. It is not intended to substitute for a medical HIV and bloodborne pathogen course for healthcare workers.

“We’re glad we can expand our training to include this course,” said Rick Frazier, director for TCC’s Division of Workforce Development. “It’s such an important topic. And by offering it online, we can expand its availability to a greater range of direct care and human service workers.”
