Led by our top trainers through a safe, virtual learning environment.

With the COVID-19 pandemic hitting every industry hard, its no surprise that the care industry was one of the ones hit the hardest. The after-effects of the pandemic has resulted in a large gap in the job market, but we here at JD Training can offer the appropriate training for all those considering employment within care, and how to start.

The Rapid Induction Training is a Skills for Care initiative, that covers all 15 standards of the Care Certificate in a condensed two-day virtual course. Perfect for those just starting out in the world of care, completing these online sessions means that within the two days, they are ready to start in their new role. Whilst competencies and work-based observations are required to receive the full Care Certificate, the standards below will be covered in-depth, and will give knowledge and confidence no matter your employment experience and background.
