Access our infection prevention and control and hand hygiene eLearning modules

The Commission provides a range of eLearning modules free of charge to support health service and aged care organisations to implement infection prevention and control and hand hygiene workforce training. These include:

  • Basics of Infection Prevention and Control Orientation (1 module)
  • Infection Prevention and Control (10 advanced education modules)
  • Aged care (2 modules)
  • Hand hygiene auditor training pathway
  • Hand hygiene auditor educator training pathway
  • Hand dermatitis (1 module)
  • Hand hygiene (3 modules)

Individual organisations should identify the training requirements for their workforce or students. If you have been directed to undertake these modules by your employer or education provider, please ask them for guidance on which module you need to complete.

These eLearning modules may also be useful for community care, and other industries where infection prevention and control is important, such as beauty therapy.

These eLearning modules are not designed for consumers or the general public.

Please visit our infection prevention and control consumer resources page for information and resources for consumers and the general public.

To access these modules, log in to the NHHI LMS using your current login details or register as a new user, if you have not previously registered.

A certificate of completion is available at the end of each successfully completed module. You can download your certificate if it is required by your employer or education provider. When you complete a module, a pop-up message will automatically appear giving you the opportunity to view or send the completed certificate to your registered email address.
