4MedPlus Corporation Releases Accredited Online Covid-19 Contact Tracing Course

As states and cities begin to re-open throughout the United States, contact tracing has become one of the most important public health measures in the fight against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Public health departments are now tasked to rapidly implement tracing programs and hire and train enough contact tracers to address emerging cases.

The 4MedPlus Online Training Corporation has developed a comprehensive entry-level contact tracing certificate program. It includes interview skill building, a real-world digital form practice tool and covers all recommended guidelines for contact tracing education. It is also the only accredited online program that includes a valid certificate of proficiency, a professional badge/seal and optional national CE credit for nursing professionals.

"The contact tracer has the ability to drastically alter the course of the virus trajectory by breaking the chain of infection and isolating those at risk of infection due to prior exposure," says Dr. Gregory Hanson, MD, MPH; subject matter expert and contributing editor for the new course "There will likely be a very large number of tracers required to meet demand while we attempt to jump start the economy in a safe manner."

What sets the 4MedPlus course apart from others, is it's focus on real-world interview samples coupled with hands-on digital practice lessons. The flexibility of delivery allows educational institutions and health organizations to host the training in their own learning management systems or provide access using a co-branded hub in the 4MedProPlus platform. It is available as a standalone course or may be bundled with basic HIPAA and Infection Prevention training for non-healthcare candidates. Volume wholesale licensing is available. 

Salary ranges for this position are reported to offer between $40k and $70k (depending upon region and experience) with both short-term and long-term opportunities opening up in all parts of the country. Public health officials say contact tracing allows for a slowdown of the virus without having to implement long-term mass stay-at-home orders, as infections in the U.S. register in the millions. Preparation for this important role through comprehensive training will be a key component of it's ultimate success.
