With so much to learn about a new virus — and more attention than ever on infection control — online learning is taking on an outsized role.
Talent manager HealthcareSource has released a free set of courses to healthcare organizations to help with emergency preparedness and infection control in the wake of Coronavirus. More than 25 courses will be publicly available through Aug. 31.
“We are committed to equipping our healthcare organizations with resources to educate and train their staff during this critical time,” HealthcareSource CEO Michael Grossi said. “We are proud to be part of an industry that comes together in times of need to support those who selflessly provide care to the patients and residents they serve.”
The free offering includes courses that link to “must-know” COVID-19 information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and content from HealthcareSources’s eLearning Library, which prepares organizations to respond to infectious outbreaks like COVID-19.
Learners can track and share course completion transcripts with their organizations.
OpenSesame also announced free, unlimited access to its coronavirus preparedness and remote work training for any organization through May 15. Courses in multiple languages address how to prevent coronavirus and other illnesses, as well as working and managing employees remotely.
“At OpenSesame, we strive to fully support our customers, and any company, in protecting their employees as well as ensuring productivity of their workforce,” said Don Spear, CEO. “With the impact of COVID-19 growing exponentially every day, travel bans widening and instructor-led training no longer an option, elearning presents the best option for organizations to train and safeguard their workforces.”
