Mar Cor Purification is pleased to announce new hemodialysis water training online courses. The training is appropriate for all staff members at your facility and is self-administered and offered on a 24-7 basis. Three different levels of training are given, each with increasing depth of information and developed for specific needs. Each course has been approved for 1.2 contact hours through the National Association of Nephrology Technicians/Technologists (NANT).* Sessions are approximately one hour in length. Please contact Mar Cor Purification to register for this program.

Level 100: developed for both new and experienced employees, whether they have direct dealings with the water system or not, to give them an introduction to water treatment and its components.

Session 100: Water Treatment for Dialysis
The Water Treatment for Dialysis training course examines the need for pure water and the function of a water treatment system necessary to produce hemodialysis quality water. This is a course that can be taken by nurses, technicians, physicians, social workers and administrators that are involved with dialysis patient care. The emphasis will be to provide the individual with a brief overview of why water quality is important. It will also identify and explain the key components that are contained within a water treatment system.
  Session 101: Basics of Water for Dialysis – Part I
This course is designed to help you understand the need for water treatment and the function of the pre-treatment components needed to produce hemodialysis-quality water. Components covered will be the tempering valve, booster pump, sediment filter, water softener, and carbon tanks.
  Session 102: Basics of Water for Dialysis – Part II
This course is designed to help you understand the basic function of the Reverse Osmosis (RO) unit and post treatment components. Components covered will be the RO, deionizers, loop distribution configurations, holding tank, UV light, endotoxin filter, and piping materials.
  Session 103: Basics of Water for Dialysis – Part III
This course is designed to help you understand the need for and monitoring of a hemodialysis water system. The monitoring of the sediment filter, water softener, carbon tank, RO system, deionizers, UV light, and endotoxin filter will be covered.


Level 200:
developed for a more in-depth study of water treatment and components.
Appropriate for the staff that will be performing monitoring checks and troubleshooting problems with the water treatment system.

  Session 201: Advanced Water for Dialysis – Part I
A more in-depth study on the water treatment system with emphasis on answering specific questions surrounding pretreatment equipment. Components covered will be the tempering valve, booster pump, sediment filter, and water softener.
  Session 202: Advanced Water for Dialysis – Part II
A continued in-depth study on the water treatment system with more emphasis on answering specific questions surrounding pretreatment and purification equipment. Components covered will be the carbon filters and the reverse osmosis machine.
  Session 203: Advanced Water for Dialysis – Part III
A continued in-depth study on the water treatment system with more emphasis on answering specific questions surrounding purification and post treatment equipment. Components covered will be deionization, storage tank, distribution system, UV purifiers, and endotoxin filters.
  Session 204: Facility Design - Start with Pure Water
To provide instruction on the importance of designing a hemodialysis clinic based on the water treatment and distribution system. This is a course that can be taken by project managers, engineers, technicians, physicians, and administrators that are involved with dialysis facility layout. The emphasis is based on providing the individual with a comprehensive overview of the issues surrounding designing a dialysis clinic from a water treatment perceptive.
  Session 205: Water Monitoring - For Patient Safety
To provide a comprehensive study on water system monitoring in hemodialysis clinics. The course is designed for individuals who are involved in all aspects of patient care, from administrators to technicians. The emphasis is focused on the importance of establishing a quality assurance program for the complete water treatment system so that water tragedies can be avoided.
Session 206: Disaster Preparedness for Dialysis Water Treatment Systems
This course is designed to provide information and guidelines about preparing your clinic’s water treatment system prior to a disaster. Needs and issues surrounding a plan are also addressed. Practical steps and response criteria are given in an effort to assist the student in implementing a disaster preparedness strategy for the water treatment program.


Level 300: developed as an advanced study of various water treatment technologies and practices. Appropriate for technicians, biomedical personnel, and others who are directly responsible for the water treatment system or wish to learn more about treating today’s water.

  Session 301: Reverse Osmosis Technology Part I
This course is designed to give you a more in-depth study on the fundamentals of reverse osmosis. This session covers the filtration of water contaminates, thoroughly explains the osmosis process, and examines cross flow filtration technology.
Session 305: Basics of Water
The Basics of Water training course identifies and explains common water problems such as hardness, iron, chlorine, turbidity, etc., that are typically found in most incoming water supplies that can negatively affect water quality. This course is primarily designed to educate hemodialysis technicians, biomedical personnel, nurse managers and other personnel responsible for the water treatment system. The emphasis will be to provide the individual with a comprehensive look at identifying water impurities as well as how these materials interact with water.

 

*Mar Cor will provide contact hours through the National Association of Nephrology Technician/ Technologists (NANT) for this program. These hours are provided through the California Board of Nursing and may be used for certification requirements by the Nephrology Nursing Certification Commission (NNCC) and recertification requirements by the Board of Nephrology Examiners, Nursing and Technology (BONENT), NNCC and the National Nephrology Certification Organization (NNCO) for both dialysis technicians and nurses.
