The 12th Annual "Infection Control 101" is a core educational package covering all the basics in infection prevention and safety.  This course is a crucial building block for dental manufacturer sales/marketing staff who have responsibility for infection control or occupational safety products and services.  

The course is value-priced at $200 and runs from Monday through Thursday, January 7-10, 2013 in San Antonio, Texas.  Note that OSAP has designed a special package for Sales and Marketing Representatives that limits the amount of time they are out of the field/office.  This special option addresses the two main days of programming that is especially relevant to the sales team.  For only $100 - you can sign up for the two-day program.  Download the registration form for the two-day option by clicking HERE.

There also is a special exhibit opportunity built into the program - a two-hour period paired with hands-on training that facilitates easy flow to the infection control vendors' tables.  One of the vendors from the 2012 course said, "Exhibit hours were set-up great. Having the learning annex next to the exhibitors worked great. They could see the products and then come talk to us."
