ECDA CPD Course (TGS-2020513067)

Infectious Diseases Management in the Early Childhood Environment (Synchronous E-learning)


Is your school ready to respond appropriately to outbreaks?
Join us in our fight to curb infectious diseases at our ECDA-approved CPD course on “Infectious Diseases Management in the Early Childhood Environment' (OTHIDME20E, 15 CPD hours). This is the first infectious disease course approved by Early Childhood Development Agency. 

Preschool educators are at the forefront of facing infectious diseases and they play an important role in preventing the spread of diseases and in managing diseases outbreaks in their schools. Everyone has a role to play in building a safe school environment free from diseases. The course content was carefully curated after consultations with various agencies to understand the needs and threats of infectious disease in schools. This interactive course promises to deliver easy-to-digest information in a fun and engaging way.

From our post-course survey result, 100% of our learners indicated in the survey form that they are more confident in handling infectious outbreaks for their schools. Check out some of the testimonial from our learners!
