Care Certificate Training

Care Certificate Training

CPD Points 30 | Duration 5 Days | £524.00 per delegate

Course Introduction

The Care Certificate, which replaces the National Minimum Training Standards and Common Induction Standards, was introduced in March 2015 and all new Healthcare Assistants, Assistant Practitioners and Care Support Workers are recommended to obtain one in their first 12 weeks of employment. The Care Certificate is underpinned by the 6 Cs and sets out the learning outcomes and standards of behaviour expected from these staff groups. The standards it sets out may be actively looked for by CQC inspection teams.

Annie Barr Associates have developed a course to provide the fundamental skills and knowledge needed to become competent in the Care Certificate Standards and thus provide safe, effective and compassionate care.

This course is accredited by the Royal College of General Practitioners

Course Aims

  • Explore and understand your role
  • Understand the importance of safe clinical practice

We also cover an additional standard of our own, Vital Signs, which covers physiological measurements such as manual BP, temperature and respiratory rate.
