Care Certificate Training


The Care Certificate is a programme which covers the 15 most essential care standards, as recommended by the Care Quality Commission (CQC). The course is designed as a replacement for both the Common Induction Standards and the National Minimum Training Standards and is highly recommended for those who are new to the care sector. There is no specific time frame for the training and delegates can work at a pace to suit their circumstances, however, it is suggested that the average time for completion is 12 weeks.


The 15 standards of care:

  • Understanding Your Role
  • Your Personal Development
  • Duty of Care
  • Equality and Diversity
  • Person-Centred Care
  • Communication
  • Privacy and Dignity
  • Fluids and Nutrition
  • Awareness of Mental Health, Dementia and Learning Disability
  • Safeguarding Adults
  • Safeguarding Children
  • Basic Life Support
  • Health and Safety
  • Handling Information
  • Infection Prevention and Control


This course takes approximately 12 weeks to complete, although duration depends entirely on the delegate. The training is all online-based to make this possible, however, we do also offer an in-house training programme which covers all 15 standards over the course of a week (3-4 per day).
