Standard Precautions Approved Training Vendor Attestation

Course Number
This course is only for Standard Precautions trainers. This is not the online Standard Precautions course. You will not receive clock hours or a certificate of completion for this course. ONLY take this course if you want to become an approved Standard Precautions trainer for the Office of Early Childhood. Completing this course will add you to the list of approved training vendors for Standard Precautions and grant you access to the training materials. It DOES NOT teach you how to conduct Standard Precautions training.

If you're trying to take Standard Precautions, register for the online Standard Precautions course.

About the Standard Precautions Attestation

By signing the Standard Precautions training vendor attestation, you declare you are currently a qualified trainer for this course and that you will conduct the training in the manner required by the Office of Early Childhood and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA). 
Therefore, upon inspection, if it is found that you are, 1) not qualified to teach this course in the manner outlined by OSHA; or 2) not conducting this training in the matter in which it is intended (such as, handing out certificates to learners without conducting training), the following could occur:

  • All signed certificates will become invalid;
  • You will be removed from the list of approved trainers and not be allowed to reapply for a period of at least two years; and
  • If you are a licensee with the Office of Early Childhood, you could be subject to negative licensing action, which could result in a fine of at least $100 and up to a maximum of $10,000.

The Attestation Process

1. Complete the Standard Precautions Attestation through the Colorado Shines PDIS. Select "Get Item" to register in this attestation "class." You will need to create a Colorado Shines PDIS account to complete this course and become an approved training vendor.
2. Your name will be added to the list of approved vendors for Standard Precautions. After completing the Attestation, you will be added to the list of approved training vendors within 1-3 weeks. You will also be given access to the Department-approved training materials, which are posted in the Colorado Shines PDIS for trainers to download and use at no cost. You will receive an email from the Colorado Shines PDIS notifying you when you have been granted access to the materials. 
3. Download the Department-approved training materials. Login to the Colorado Shines PDIS to access the Department-approved Standard Precautions training materials and certificate. Beginning January 1, 2018, all approved trainers must use these Department-approved training materials.

Qualified Training Vendors

Based on Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) requirements, trainers must be knowledgeable in the subject matter. Possible trainers include a variety of healthcare professionals such as infection control practitioners, nurse practitioners, registered nurses, occupational health professionals, physician's assistants, and emergency medical technicians. Non-healthcare professionals, such as but not limited to, industrial hygienists, epidemiologists, or professional trainers, may conduct the training provided they are knowledgeable in the subject matter covered by the elements contained in the training program as it relates to the workplace. One way, but not the only way, knowledge can be demonstrated is the fact that the trainer has received specialized training. Read more about OSHA requirements.
