Consultus Carer training courses
Care courses enhance your knowledge and confidence, and open up more work opportunities for you.
We offer a range of care-related training courses, delivered by our friendly team of experienced healthcare professionals. All of our courses are also available to private carers and even people looking after friends or relatives.
Each training course you sign up for, except for our distance learning courses, is delivered at our head office in Tonbridge Kent. And if you need to stay overnight, the Consultus Carer House is an affordable and convenient place to stay, although places are limited, so it's worth booking in early.
Our carers tell us they find the training helpful and enjoyable, especially as it provides an opportunity to meet with other carers.
