Isopharm launches ‘bite-sized’ CPD training
Isopharm will in May launch online training for sterile services, endoscopy, decontamination, and validation engineers, ‘offering a platform where all levels of staff can access a vast array of training modules written by industry experts’.
The company says that while it has been well-known for some 20 years for its decontamination process validation systems and UKAS laboratory services for water and microbiological testing, many may not know that for the past few years it has supported the dental industry by providing an online CPD training platform which has almost 70,000 registered users.
Isopharm explained: “Training modules are ‘bite-sized’, and last under 60 minutes each, allowing for regular short training sessions without any impact on departmental productivity.
Modules will cover all areas of SSD and EDU, providing the information that staff need to know, and explaining why processes are completed in specific ways. Once a module has been completed, there is a short assessment to confirm the staff member’s competency, and once passed, they then receive an online certificate.”
Department managers will also have full visibility of staff progress via their online staff register and training dashboard, a service provided free with their subscription. Isopharm says the training platform ‘will assist new starters, and support refresher training for those who are experienced in the industry’.
It added: “With training a key motivator for staff, our department-based subscription system will enable managers to give staff access to their own training account, and with this, another way to demonstrate achievement within their role.”
