Laboratory Consultation Services, Inc. was founded in 1978 by a group of experienced clinical laboratory professionals to provide consulting services to commercial and physician-office based clinical laboratories. These services included training of laboratory staff in infection control practices to comply with existing state and federal regulations. When OSHA began requiring compliance with regulations on bloodborne pathogens, these services became part of our portfolio.
In 1992 New York State Departments of Education and Health required licensed healthcare professionals to complete a certified Infection Control Courses as part of the licensing process. Having experience in the federal OSHA training and clinical pathology we were uniquely situated to become one of the first providers of this training to be approved by New York State. Recognizing the growing importance of the Internet, we took the course online a few years later.
Our courses were well received and, in response to requests by clients, we expanded our professional staff to include a more diverse base in varied fields. With their expertise we added the NYS Child Abuse Certification and NYS School Violence Prevention courses. These were approved by New York State for all professions in the online format and are available 24/7 on the Internet at www.laboratoryconsultationservices.com.
Our most recent efforts have been in expansion of our offerings to other states in order to provide the convenience of online continuing education to a broader audience. Additional courses were added to our menu with the addition of California Dental Infection Control, California Dental Practice Act for Dentists and California Dental Practice Act for Dental Auxillaries.*
Our courses have been successfully completed by thousands of professionals in (to date 49 states and over 50 foreign countries on six continents. Although our courses are licensed by specific states, many states accept our courses for Continuing Education credits.
Our staff continually reviews the content and presentation of our courses to keep them up-to-date, informative, relevant and user-friendly. Additional courses are added as they become available.
