Control of Cross Infection in a Post-Covid World – Professional Standards of Hygiene
Free Open Access – accredited and certified online training
Jennifer Young, founder of www.BeautyDespiteCancer.com, has been teaching enhanced hygiene standards for decades. She brought professional oncology touch therapy qualifications and specialist skincare for cancer patients to the beauty and holistic world.
Prior to joining the spa community, Jennifer was responsible for enforcing the law regarding control of cross infection. During her time working for the organisation that writes and upholds the law governing infection control, Jennifer added post-graduate qualifications in Occupational Health and Law to her first degree in Biology. Working internationally, she has helped global organisations to protect their teams as well as their clients.
It is time for the spa industry to recognise the need for increased hygiene standards in the Post-Covid World. Jennifer Young has created an online accredited, assessed and certified qualification for spa, holistic and beauty therapists. The training is freely available to all – there is no cost for the training or the certification. The Jennifer Young Professional Standard of Hygiene certificate will be awarded upon successful completion of the course. The qualification logo will be made available to certificate holders to display online and in spa to reassure all that enhanced control measures are in place and are monitored.
The Jennifer Young Post Graduate Diplomas in Oncology Touch Therapies have hygiene standards at their heart. Jennifer believes that everyone deserves these higher standards of infection control. She is delighted to be able to share her expertise so that you can give your clients what they deserve.
Therapists and spa managers are asked to complete four levels of The Jennifer Young Professional Standard of Hygiene.
All levels require students to complete an online questionnaire. Certificates are awarded upon successful completion of each level.
Level 1 – Introduction
Therapists will be taught how to research and interpret legal requirements and apply them to infection control within their workplace. Delegates will be shown how to structure, record and convey decisions made with regard to control of cross infection.
Level 2 – The Basics
Level 1 Professional Standards of Hygiene should be in place in all therapy rooms. Level 1 training provides a gentle reminder of that which we should all be doing.
Level 3 – Intermediate
Level 4 – Advanced and committed
Looking after the therapist – individual responsibility and employer responsibilities. This advanced qualification addresses some of the root causes of infection and the evidence to support methods of infection control.
A healthy therapist is an effective therapist – during level 4 we look at ways in which therapists can become and stay healthy, physically and psychologically.
Myths are dispelled and scientific research is celebrated.
