NACCHO 2024 Certification in Infection Control

NACCHO 2024 Certification in Infection Control Scholarship Opportunity for Local Health Departments: Applications Open

NACCHO, in partnership with CDC, is excited to announce the 2024 scholarship opportunity for current local health department (LHD) staff who have healthcare infection prevention and control (IPC) experience and expertise to obtain a Certification in Infection Control (CIC) or Associate-Infection Prevention and Control (a-IPC). The selected LHDs for this scholarship will be reimbursed up to $2,500 for their staff’s exam fees and study materials. However, for LHDs planning to purchase exam registrations for more than 3 staff, for each additional individual who plans to be certified, $500 may be granted to cover those registration costs up to $5,000. The amount your LHD is awarded will be determined based on who you specify in the application. Exam registration is required, and all reimbursable expenses must be incurred and submitted by June 30, 2024. The exam itself may be taken after the expenses deadline but must be taken within 90 days of CBIC confirmation of eligibility. Scholarship recipients may be asked to provide feedback on the certification process and the impact certification has had on their department’s capacity for IPC efforts. NACCHO will use this feedback to inform future project activities supporting LHDs in IPC. For more information about the exams, including eligibility requirements, please visit the Certification Board of Infection Control and Epidemiology, Inc.’s (CBIC®) website.

 

The deadline for submitting applications for scholarships is Friday, January 26. NACCHO will select and notify LHDs for this scholarship on a rolling basis through Friday, February 16. NACCHO encourages LHDs to first review the full announcement page and regularly updated FAQ document, join and submit a question to the “CIC Scholarship Community” on NACCHO’s virtual community platform, or email NACCHO at infectiousdiseases@naccho.org with the subject line “CIC Scholarship.”
