Welcome to the Duke Infectious Disease Response Training Program
Learning Management System
The Duke Infectious Disease Response Training (DIDRT) program is designed to prepare individuals at risk of infectious disease exposure in their work place to safely perform their assigned job duties. Awareness, operations and train-the-trainer level training is available for: first responders, custodial workers, air travel/transport services, and healthcare/laboratory professionals.
In addition to e-learning, hands-on training is provided at five federally constructed Regional Biocontainment Laboratories across the US. Training instructors are part of a national collaborative network of biosafety professionals with extensive experience delivering comprehensive and effective emergency response training.
