Personal Protective Measures Course

The Ohio Department of Health (ODH) is committed to working closely with local jurisdictions to ensure that they have the information and resources needed to properly prepare for and respond to infectious disease outbreaks such as Ebola, and to collaborate with the healthcare sector through participation in regional healthcare coalitions.

ODH is coordinating with the Federal Emergency Management Agency’s (FEMA) Center for Domestic Preparedness (CDP) to provide three Personal Protective Measures for Biological Events (PER-320) courses to be offered throughout the state of Ohio. This course will provide students with an overview of personal protective equipment (PPE), and includes an experimental learning activity (ELA) practicing donning and doffing PPE Level C. Additionally, there is a review of the different types of decontamination and an ELA practicing technical decontamination.

These courses will be open for anyone to attend and we encourage you to forward them on our behalf. They are targeted to local public health workers and their partners such as, EMS personnel and other healthcare coalition members.

If you are interested in participating in one of the offered courses, please follow the registration instructions below. The courses will be limited to ~50 participants per course and will be filled on a “first come, first served”. Once you register for the course, you will receive an email to verify you have been approved.
