If you are working in the dentistry industry, you will need to have an understanding of many different aspects of infection control to keep you and your clients safe.

Why are ProTrainings online courses different?

Unlike other e-learning courses, ProTrainings use just videos training rather than reading PowerPoint text which makes our courses more engaging. You do not have to complete the course in one sitting, stop and return whenever you want. You have 8 months to complete the course and you can even view the course after you pass giving you access to new videos and downloads. Your certificate can be printed immediately on completion along with your certified CPD and Evidenced-based learning statement to evidence your qualification.

Under every video, we have added text to support the video and you also receive manuals and downloads free. To keep your skills fresh, you can opt for free weekly refresher videos. You are assessed during the course and at the end, there is a final multiple choice test. If you get a question wrong you will be given support to ensure you understand every part. You can re-take the test without charge. This may be an online course, but you can still contact us by phone, online chat or email.

If you require classroom training or practical evaluations these can be arranged nationally at your workplace.

ProTrainings are Endorsed by Skills for Care for both classroom and e-learning courses.

No more old-fashioned, cut-rate powerpoint training — your health and safety are too important to cut corners.
