The H. Lavity Stoutt Community College (HLSCC), through the Centre for Professional Development and Community Education and its online course partner, Ed4Online, is pleased to offer a free course about the Zika Virus.
This self-study course is open to the public to meet the need for education regarding its symptoms, pathology and mitigation as the threat of the Zika Virus grows and continues to spread within the borders of the Caribbean.
The Zika Virus course discusses the discovery, transmission, symptoms, diagnoses, treatment, risks, and prevention of Zika virus. The goal of the course—and the reason it is being offered to the public free of charge—is to help educate the general population to reduce the infection rate and minimise its impact as a public health emergency.
The online course can be accessed from virtually anywhere with an Internet connection and takes less than 30 minutes to complete. After completing the self-paced course, enrollees will have an understanding of how the virus is transmitted, what its symptoms are, how it is treated and what can be done to protect themselves and others from becoming infected. HLSCC urges healthcare workers, professional service providers, students and other members of the workforce to enroll in this class, along with concerned citizens who might also be at risk for coming into contact with the virus.
