    Excellent!! Took the course and I’m working in a reputed hospital.

  4. Could be better


    While the information is great for the entry level, it would be nice to have links to the websites with most current updates for those who want to expand or have a current knowledge of the infection control issues affecting the local areas or globally.
    Except for a few in-text mentions of WHO and DH, I could not find the authors, references or bibliography for the course which, despite great material cannot be considered evidence based practice if the is hardly any record where the evidence comes from.
    Both Mock and Final tests have options of “Both A& B” etc but the multiple choices for each question are unlabeled, therefore it is not quite clear which options to choose. This needs to be fixed. Otherwise a useful course, especially for entry level students.
