The BloodBorne Pathogen Certification Course taught in conjunction with First Aid Training or CPR training is one of the requirements of the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) BloodBorne Pathogens Standard. Designed for anyone who’s at some of the risks of pathogen exposure during first aid contact, the course educated bystanders and rescuers how BloodBorne pathogens tend to spread, how to avoid pathogen exposure, and what one can do in case of exposure to potentially infectious material.
