About COVID-19 training

When the new strain of coronavirus was discovered in 2019, no one had ever predicted the devastating impacts it would bring to the world. COVID-19, or coronavirus disease 2019, is transmitted mainly through droplets, infecting anyone who breathes them in or comes into contact with a contaminated surface. To help reduce the spread of the infection, it’s not enough to only follow the guidelines set by the World Health Organization (WHO) or Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) - it is also crucial to have a better understanding of this disease. Deploying a reliable COVID-19 training course prepared by industry experts will help employers and their workers determine the most responsible course of action that must be taken, to protect not only their loved ones but also the community at large.

EdApp is easy to use and free for you and your team. No credit card required.
