Free face-to-face PPE training now available in Victoria

Free face-to-face infection control training is now available for people working in residential aged care facilities in Victoria.

This new training program announced by the Minister for Aged Care and Senior Australians Richard Colbeck, builds upon the online training program released by the Commonwealth Government earlier in the year.

This free training is being delivered by Monash University, in partnership with the Victorian government.

Bookings are welcomed from all residential aged care facilities across Victoria without any current cases of coronavirus (COVID-19) among their staff and residents. Please fill in the booking request form or contact PPE.Project@monash.edu for more information.

The Commonwealth Department of Health has also developed online training for care workers across all health care settings, including aged care. This training covers the fundamentals of infection prevention and control for coronavirus (COVID-19).

 

This advice was provided The Department of Health. For further information please visit the department’s  website.
