Aged Care Leads – Become a Credentialled IPC Professional
Did you know if you have recently completed the Foundations of Infection Prevention and Control course, you are eligible to become credentialled?
The College can assist you in taking the next step in your Infection Prevention and Control journey and becoming a Credentialled IPC Professional.
What is credentialling and why should I become credentialled?
For infection control professionals, credentialling provides a clear industry-recognised pathway whereby you can demonstrate the necessary knowledge, skills, and attributes to be recognised by your peers as an Infection Control Professional. All applications are reviewed by the Credentialing and Professional Standards Committee who have a wealth of knowledge and experience in a range of practice contexts.
As a credentialled ICP, you are professionally committed to excellence in practice as evidenced by your willingness to undergo peer review. When awarded, the credential carries the imprimatur of the College as the peak professional body for infection prevention and control in Australasia.
Completing the Foundations of Infection Prevention and Control course is the core education component for becoming a Primary Credentialled Infection Control Practitioner (CICP-P).
Everything you need to know to take this next step in your career can be found on the ACIPC website. The College Credentialling and Professional Standards Committee and Office staff can assist with any questions you may have. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
We highly recommend credentialing to all recently graduated Aged Care Leads!
