U.S. Navy to Host Legionella Course in San Diego
The Naval School of Health Sciences will host the Legionella Prevention Training Course November 5-6, 2003, at its state-of-the-art training facility in the heart of San Diego. The training center is less than five miles from the airport, across the street from the famous San Diego Zoo, and close to the harbor and beaches.
The course will include government and industry guidelines; legal issues; risk reduction strategies; preventive policies for domestic water systems, cooling towers, and other devices; sampling methodology; interpretation of water test results; outbreak response; domestic water disinfection methods; and case studies. Matt Freije, author of Legionellae Control in Health Care Facilities: A Guide for Minimizing Risk, will be the instructor.
Attendees will also see videos of CNN and CBS Legionnaires' news coverage, and a documentary about the Philadelphia outbreak in 1976 that led to the discovery of the disease.
The tuition of $575 ($495 for three or more) includes a course manual, copy of Legionellae Control in Health Care Facilities: A Guide for Minimizing Risk, a certificate, and 1.2 CEUs. Since the course will be at a military site, names of registrants must be submitted to security at least one week before the course. Anyone not on the list will not be permitted through the gate, so advance registration is a must. Seating is limited.
