There are two parts to the Care Certificate:-

We’re here to provide the training part – our high impact classroom training course can be delivered by our experts at your place of work OR you can attend an open course here at Regent House.

Our ‘Care Certificate Training Classroom Course’ delivers the knowledge care workers, healthcare assistants and social care workers need to help them towards achieving the Care

Delegates will be issued with a Care Certificate workbook on the day of training and you will record knowledge gained on the assessments pages.

Delegates will then be issued with your own Care Certificate to take to their employer.

This is a full day face to face training course, covering each of the care standards (Skills for Care 2015), plus recommended key areas as appropriate for organisational needs and requirements. Each delegate completes an assessment workbook which is aligned to the standards and upon successful completion is awarded a care certificate which lasts for a period of twelve months. Delegates need to complete this training annually.
