Start as a Healthcare Assistant

Mandatory Healthcare Assistant training.  Frontline Training Services are delivering QQI Level 5 5N2770 Care Skills and 5N2706 Care of the Older Person in association with Irish Times Training. We believe that excellent training follows their excellence in recruitment of carers.



This blended learning approach is multi-faceted. Healthcare Assistants have an opportunity to develop their practical and reflective skills in classroom. Further theoretical training takes place online through tutor interaction in the online community, videos and reflective opportunities. Access to the Learner Mangement System will continue for 6 weeks. Healthcare Assistants will submit their assignments for these modules on that date.
