I wrote 6 pages of notes while viewing the videos and taking the quizzes, the whole course start to finish took under 4 hours, but was informative and if you are interested in this type of work, or have done similar work it will reaffirm the information that you already know.

This course is truly helpful and timely. It taught me a lot about the whole process and importance of contact tracing, and how this essential tool can help in reducing the cases of COVID-19 worldwide.

Informative, but flawed.
I strongly object to instructing tracers not to report illegal aliens (not undocumented) to the appropriate authorities. Failure to report a crime exposes the tracer to possible prosecution as an accessory after the fact.
You state the tracer has no right to to report the identity of an illegal alien to Immigration, etc. ... you are correct. The tracer has the DUTY as a law abiding citizen of the United States to report the whereabouts of illegal aliens.
My rating is reflective of your support for illegal immigration.

Excellent overview of Contact Tracing. Material is clearly presented and well-paced with mini-quizzes posted throughout the average total of 5-6 hours. Final assessment is challenging, but well-worth the time and effort of the course. The "Effective Communications" component is especially useful since it presents a panoply of situations demonstrating various problem-solving tips. Ultimately, compassion and rapport are required in addition to data collection and information sharing.

Some modules were a bit lengthy. The videos could've been produced in a way that is more engaging. Also, the questions provided were confusing. For example, one question asked regarding the difference between confidential and private information. And the correct answer provided was a definition of what confidential information is. To my understanding, whenever someone asks to differentiate two ideals, there has to be a comparison in the supposed answer. Just my two cents.
By Sarita E•
There are some grammatical errors. I would like to see more videos with interactions of the contact tracer and patient. Less slides. Other than that it war really informative.
By Oscar F G•
El curso ha estado genial y he aprendido un montón de información sobre Covid19!
Pero falta una cosa fundamental, y son las personas que tienen que acudir in situ a realizar la investigación de la gente que ha podido tener contácto con el paciente infectado, y eso no se puede realziar por teléfono.
Ahí es donde entra la figura del Detective Privado.
