This new and intensive 34-hour certificate program will provide Environmental Services leaders and professionals with the requisite knowledge to meet the CMS requirements for a “trained” professional in infection prevention and control specific to the clinical environment of care. 

Three distinct phases comprise this comprehensive program which explores the most important topics in infection prevention:

  • Microbiology and epidemiology
  • Patient and health care worker safety
  • Surveillance, risk assessment, outbreaks
  • Antimicrobial stewardship
  • Evidence-based cleaning practices and environmental monitoring
  • Preventing infection during construction and emergencies.

The Certificate of Mastery in Infection Prevention and Control for Environmental Services Professionals (CMIP) is a robust certificate program which requires online pre-work and an in person training session, along with an optional post-session capstone project/assessment.
