The International Christian Medical and Dental Association (ICMDA) has partnered with the Christian Medical College (CMC) in Vellore, India to provide COVID-19 preparedness training.

The organizations have collaborated to provide a Training of Trainers (ToT) course. Master Trainers in church and mission hospitals in Africa and Asia can take the course online. A new ToT course is offered every two weeks.

The program consists of nine self-learning modules plus two Zoom classes with CMC faculty. Before moving to the next module, students must pass a quiz showing mastery of the material. Upon completion of the course, they must pass a final exam. Once certified, they can begin training others in their network with the same materials.

The critical care course includes training on diagnosing COVID-19, managing quarantine and isolation protocols, prevention and infection control, and critical care for patients in respiratory and cardiovascular distress.

The training is provided at no cost. Hospitals can nominate a Master Trainer by completing a survey on their current levels of COVID-19 resources and training.
