Bloodborne Pathogens Standard Class

This is by far the most comprehensive, industry specific bloodborne pathogens program available for permanent cosmetic professionals. The OSHA Bloodborne Pathogens Standard will be covered, with an emphasis on needlestick guidelines, Hepatitis B and C, information on MRSA, exposure control plan requirements, recordkeeping, and the latest interpretation covering these topics as they relate to the body modification industry. A bloodborne pathogens class is a requirement for taking the CPCP exam. This live class is a great source for review and is preferred by many!
