Did you know? – The Care Certificate and Basic Life Support

The Care Certificate:

  • applies across health and social care;
  • links to competences (National Occupational Standards) and units in qualifications;
  • covers what is required to be caring;
  • will equip workers with the fundamental skill they need to provide quality care; and
  • gives them a basis from which they can further develop your knowledge and skills as their career progresses.

And that Standard 12 – Basic Life Support means that you as a care worker/learner should:

  • Be able to carry out basic life support.
  • Complete practical Basic Life Support Training that meets the UK Resuscitation Council guidelines.
    • If working with Adults in health and social care they will undertake training in adult basic life support.
    • If working with Paediatric patients in health they will undertake training in paediatric basic life support.
    • If working with Newborn patients in health they will undertake training in newborn life support.
