Training for the Care Sectors

Care Home training

Over the last few years our presence in the care home sector has been on the rise.

We have been working with a number of residential and care homes to ensure that their staff are fully conversant with PAT Testing, Safe isolation and the Wiring Regulations. The courses are being taken in order to keep their residents safe and to maintain a good standard of safety without raising their maintenance costs.

In the care environment gaining access and appointing qualified and CRB checked contractors can be a major disruption. That’s why a number of care homes are now opting to have their own personnel trained to carry out basic electrical tasks such as PAT Testing and basic electrical maintenance in-house.

Apart from giving them flexibility, it also helps to keep electrical items maintained on an ongoing basis and keeps the competency and skills in-house for a better managed electrical maintenance regime.

The PASS business development team can cater courses and content to suit each customers individual needs. PASS has a team of trainers based across the UK, so they are able to train people on public courses, or run dedicated group courses at your premises or at locations nearby.

Take a look at our most popular courses delivered to care homes:
