Kathy gets it.

She knows having to take bloodborne pathogens training every year can seem to be an unnecessary burden.

But it's not.

BBP training is important. It helps you protect the health and well-being of your clients and yourself.

That’s why Kathy made sure our training is worth every minute of your time.

When you take one of our bloodborne pathogens courses, you'll get coached on how to:

  • Be ready for inspections and exposure incidents
  • Do body art procedures safely and consistently
  • Achieve and maintain high standards of practice

You’ll get more than a certificate; you’ll get effective training that will help you meet your professional responsibilities and have a successful career.

Take a course and see for yourself!
