Free Ebola Readiness Program Being Offered By CertSpring
MICRO-LEARNING START-UP LAUNCHES FREE EBOLA READINESS PROGRAM ADDRESSING WIDESPREAD CONCERN ABOUT THE (CDC) LACK OF PROGRESS TO PROVIDE ADEQUATE LEARNING PROGRAMS.
PITTSBURGH, PA (PRUnderground) October 30th, 2014
Pittsburgh Sharing widespread concern about the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) lack of progress to certify that healthcare workers have read and understand the government issued basic guidelines for Ebola preparedness, CertSpring, a micro-learning and certification start-up, has launched a free service that fixes the problem.
Frank Bilotto, CertSpring’s Chief Commercial Officer, said, “We have set up a website where healthcare workers can get certified on the CDC’s preparedness guidelines. It is an example of how we can do in ten minutes what a fully-resourced government agency can’t get done weeks after it said it would. Like many American’s we are worried about how this Ebola scare is being managed by agencies like the CDC so we set up www.ebola-cdc.com as a free public service. Getting certified takes less than 10 minutes.”
Citing reports of concern from organizations like the National Nurses United, the country’s largest union and professional association of nurses, that hospitals were not doing enough, and State’s governors demanding training within 48-hours, Mr. Bilotto went on to say, “What the CDC would spend hundreds of thousands on, CertSpring has done in less than 24-hours and for less than $1000.”
Talking to reporters Mr. Bilotto said, “This isn’t just an issue for healthcare workers. Employers need to recognize the importance of having their employees up-to-speed on Ebola preparedness. That’s why anyone can go to www.ebola-cdc.com and opt for the non-healthcare workers’ certificate.”
