HEALTHCARE CONSTRUCTION INFECTION CONTROL TRAINING

The Institute has been providing IC Training since 1997. CICTI has been established to provide comprehensive risk assessment and management training for complex healthcare renovation and expansion projects. The Institute was created to fill an identified gap in cost-effective, comprehensive Infection Control Training and Certification.

WHAT IS ICRA?

The acronym “ICRA” stands for Infection Control Risk Assessment. ICRA is intended to be a process to identify and correspondingly mitigate potential impacts to patients and healthcare services from construction and maintenance scopes of work. Originally intended to address infectious material concerns pertaining to molds, bacteria and to a lesser extent viruses, ICRA now encompasses potential risks to operational systems, services, patient satisfaction and staff/HR concerns. These potential impacts can be real or simply perceived. A comprehensive ICRA can proactively address and mitigate the identified hazards to facilitate successful scope execution in the high-risk environments of healthcare facilities.

WHO NEEDS ICRA TRAINING?

The short answer: anyone who has impact on the success or failure of healthcare construction and maintenance activities. The right answer is a bit more complex. Architects and Engineers can benefit from infection prevention education that focuses on design elements, materials selection, constructability and life cycle maintenance. Infection Prevention (IP) Nurses can benefit from education that leverages their existing knowledge of Clinical IP into an enhanced understanding of construction activities – subjects not typically addressed in Nursing School. Facilities Management and Technicians can benefit from targeted education addressing the infection prevention aspects associated with planned maintenance and break/fix response scenarios. Owner Project Management can benefit from education that focuses on requisite monitoring to ensure contractor compliance and user satisfaction. GCs/CMs can benefit from ICRA education ranging from RFP response, Pre-Con, estimating, risk anticipation, implementation, and monitoring documentation strategies that both address patient/client risk and corporate liability protection. In CICTI’s opinion, the trades working in the field are the most important individuals to train in Infection Prevention. They are where risk mitigation is ultimately attained or abandoned.

WHAT TRAINING DOES CICTI OFFER?

CICTI currently offers four Certification courses: Worker, Manager, Facilities Technician, and Trainer. All Certifications require mastery of a targeted level of Infection Control theory, practice and proficiency testing. All CICTI Certifications are issued to an individual that attends a course program and completes requisite proficiency testing. CICTI Certifications are valid from issuance to expiration, independent of employer or employment status.

We also offer ICRA training for the design team where proactive planning has an opportunity to support life cycle infection prevention. While this offering is not associated with a Certification, continuing education credits or learning units can be accrued through attendance by architects, engineers, executive level healthcare owners / contractors.

Empowering individuals to recognize and implement appropriate Infection Prevention strategies is at the core of CICTI’s mission. Companies, organizations AND healthcare customers (patients) will benefit from these empowered individuals.

WHY USE CICTI?

CICTI trainers have extensive experience supporting hundreds of healthcare projects nationwide. They are not professors, but are professionals. Our trainers have experience supporting Owners, Designers, and Contractors. Having ‘seen’ infection control through the perspective of the various vested parties, CICTI has a holistic view of the objectives, needs, and perspective of the array of entities involved in complex healthcare projects.

CICTI Certification Programs are uniquely focused on delivering hands-on, comprehensive training and Certifications in Infection Control during Healthcare construction, renovation, and maintenance. CICTI was created to fill an identified gap in cost-effective, comprehensive, hands-on Infection Control Training targeted for specific audiences – right down to the worker in the field. Existing commercially available training programs are mostly restricted to the 20,000 feet level with generic protocols and broad concept based approaches. At CICTI, we emphasize hands-on use and proper implementation of scaled control strategies during healthcare renovations in our onsite mock-up rooms. We are devoted to maximizing your personnel’s absorbed knowledge and your Corporate ROI on your precious training dollars.

CICTI Programs Deliver the Following:
• The Ability to Tailor Exercises and Examples Around Client-Specific Projects / Purposes
• Small Class Sizes to Facilitate Engaged Learning and Retention
• Targeted Hands-On Training with ICRA related Tools and Equipment
• Post Course Proficiency Testing to Demonstrate Absorbed Knowledge (ROI)
• Multi-Year Certifications
• Competitive Pricing and Significant Volume Discounts
• Tiered Programs for Specific Audiences
• Train-the-Trainer Methodology
• Onsite Programs at Your Facility, Jobsite, Office, etc., with 6+ Students

At CICTI, our Institute contains a classroom that has been equipped to handle a maximum class size of 15. In designing the classroom, CICTI considered class size as it relates to individual interaction, comfort and corresponding retention of information. The heart of the Institute is our mock up rooms. These rooms were specifically designed to facilitate hands-on training in Infection Control practices. Course attendees will utilize these rooms to proceed through a series of mock scenarios. The intent is to place course attendees into the shoes of those that install and maintain these measures. Through a better understanding of the variables and nuances that must be considered during ICRA design and implementation, attendees will be better equipped to detail, manage and sanity check installations at your specific job sites.
