What They're Saying About UBC-ICRA
“Our infection preventionists learned new aspects of containment building, types of HEPA filtration and manometers during the session,” she explained. “This increased knowledge was utilized to gain support for the purchase of portable hard sided pop-up containments which have been now utilized in COVID-19 response for interior redesign. Also upgrades and purchase of digital manometers.”
“Morris Hospital worked with the Chicago Carpenters Union ICRA Team in 2018 to ensure that all ICRA guidelines were being followed during our multi-year renovation project. This training was invaluable, and it helped in keeping our workers, staff and patients safe.”
“The [building] trades and infection preventionists have different areas of expertise and a different vocabulary. The [UBC]-ICRA class brings the trades and IPs together so we all can sit at the table and speak the same language. It truly is a win-win for the safety of our patients. ”
“Consolidated Flooring of Chicago is proud to partner with the UBC in the skill advancement and training of our entire workforce. Both INSTALL [floorcovering training] and ICRA prepare our workers and support staff the most current and industry leading training, especially in the ever evolving and unique environments of performing work in modern healthcare facilities.”
“We have become known as the go-to company for ICRA, as demonstrated by the requests from general contractors such as Skanska and Turner, as well as hospitals directly.”
“This is a very thorough and informative class. I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to enhance their workforce and company resume.”
“The Carpenters are our frontline people keeping our workers and other trades safe. They also keep the patients safe from anything that we could be putting into their environment.”
“I was impressed the content of the curriculum offered as it was a tremendous opportunity for both Plant and Infection Preventionist to learn together. The way you set up the breakout sessions was just terrific for this!”
“Here at E&K of Denver, we appreciate the training on ICRA because we have been able to utilize it to help the community set up a provisionary hospital to fight Covid-19. We look forward to keep using the knowledge our employees have gained to continue going after this type of work.”
“I find that when I mention to any owner or personnel associated with healthcare or medical centers that I’ve attended [the UBC-ICRA] course it brings instant validity to any input that I may provide.”
“PCI Flortech is committed to working with the UBC on all training that differentiates us from our competitors. By completing the various ICRA and INSTALL training modules, we continue to market our company as one of the premier flooring contractors in the nation.”
“Our relationship with the Carpenters Union has expanded to include providing continuing education credits across the region for their 8-Hour ICRA training. The relationship has had a mutual benefit by expanding the visibility of the Heartland Center across the nation.”
“Marshall University has adopted the UBC-ICRA program, and we’re very pleased. We have practiced infection control and prevention for several years, but it’s been greatly enhanced by the education that’s offered by the Carpenters Union.”
“United Hospital Center has developed a great partnership with the Carpenters ICRA program over the last five years. They offer their program free of charge to hospitals, including special training for Infection Preventionists, who understand the principles of infection control but may not understand construction, renovation, and maintenance practices in their facility.”
“On the other side of that wall there may be a patient who just went through chemotherapy or maybe there’s a brand-new baby in that bed. Your construction site is right in an area where you have very immune-compromised people. The most important thing about the ICRA class is making sure that we have a good mix of maintenance individuals, general contractors, subcontractors and infection preventionists. It’s amazing when you start sharing those areas of expertise.”
“Since the ICRA training, we have a better relationship with the infection control team, construction and facilities team. It’s helped us understand what the standards of practice are and to update our process.”
