H1N1 Safety Training available on Coggno’s Online Training Marketplace


Camas, WA, Convergence Training, produces courses on a wide variety of health and safety issues in a range of media formats. With the 2009 H1N1 Pandemic taking hold around the world, Convergence is addressing rapidly growing concerns with a video that highlights and reinforces prevention of H1N1 Influenza, or “Flu,” through some very simple methods. Their newly published course, “H1N1 Awareness,” addresses basic behaviors that can help everyone protect themselves and their families from getting and spreading the H1N1 Flu, previously referred to as “Swine Flu.”

Back in 1957, the “Asian Flu” pandemic spread the H2N2 strain of influenza throughout the U.S. As a result, individuals from that generation developed immunity to the H1N1 virus that is currently spreading worldwide. The biggest threat that the H1N1 Flu poses is that it targets children and young adults who have no immunity to such viral exposures. Since it is a new strain of the influenza virus and since flu vaccines are typically developed using a time-consuming biological process involving egg proteins, an effective vaccine has not only taken more time to deliver than expected, but also produced far fewer doses than needed.

To complicate the issue, there is ongoing controversy regarding the safety and effectiveness of the H1N1 vaccine. However, in addition to routine testing of the vaccine, the CDC (Centers for Disease Control) and the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) will be closely monitoring vaccination efforts for indications of unexpected adverse effects.

While, many parents may still be hesitant to get their children vaccinated, there are some basic behaviors that can help children and others at risk stay healthy. Convergence Training’s accurate and entertaining H1N1 Awareness video is designed to help nearly any audience put the 2009 H1N1 Pandemic into perspective and remember some basics to help avoid getting and stop spreading the H1N1 Flu.

Randy Kohltfarber, Convergence’s Director of Product Development, explains that “Our goals for this new video are to provide information and tools that can help prevent the spread of the H1N1 Flu, reduce the potential social and economic impact on our country, and ultimately save lives.”

Known for its use of 2D and 3D graphics and distinct visual style, Convergence Training is offering this video for purchase and download in flexible, easily-sharable formats to encourage broad distribution of the training.
