Bugs make for good conversations!

As we have tried to highlight through the Talk Clean To Me blog, the Clean Freaks have a passion for educating anyone and everyone when it comes to infection prevention and the use of cleaning and disinfecting chemicals.  One other way we try to support education on global basis is through an annual sponsorship of Webber Training Inc. The Teleclass Education by Webber Training is an international lecture series on infection prevention and control topics. The objective is to bring the best possible infection prevention and control information; to the widest possible audience; with the fewest barriers to access. 

In keeping with the theme for this quarter "bugs, germs and pathogens" the following is a list of teleclasses that have been offered or will be offered this year. The cost to join in is very minimal and the proceeds of the teleclasses go directly back into provision of education initiatives to infection prevention professionals from under-resourced countries.
