Help Prevent Foodborne Outbreaks with CDC’s Fun E-Learning (And See Our New Promo Video!)Posted on by
The skills needed to participate in an outbreak investigation are different from those needed to inspect restaurants, and the role of environmental health staff is critical.
Check out our short video promoting CDC’s fun, free, and interactive training on Environmental Assessment of Foodborne Illness Outbreaks.
NCEH’s e-Learning on Environmental Assessment of Foodborne Illness Outbreaks takes an estimated 8 to 10 hours to complete. The course takes you into a virtual world where your role is environmental health investigator. You’re granted unique access and become part of a team of special agents who are tasked with ensuring the public’s health.
The training is very user friendly. If you have to logoff at any point a place marker will be set so you can begin exactly where you left off. This is applicable even if you are in the middle of a lesson and have not completed it. Once you finish, you will receive a certificate of completion. You can also earn continuing education units.
