What are the regulatory requirements for mandatory training?

Professional organisations such as the General Medical Council (GMC) and the Nursing & Midwifery Council (NMC) and the Health and Care Professions Council (HCPC) provide regulatory support and guidance regarding mandatory training for doctors, registered nurses and allied health professionals (AHPs). The Royal College of Nursing (RCN) has also provided guidance on the differences between mandatory training and statutory training. It is important to note that mandatory training requirements may differ for medical, nursing and healthcare professionals may differ depending on the NHS or private sector settings where they work.

The Care Quality Commission (CQC) can take regulatory action if healthcare or social care providers do not meet the CQC Regulation 18 requirements. The CQC Regulation 18 requirements state that health and social care staff must receive support, training and personal development necessary for them to carry out their job role. Employees that have completed mandatory training courses previously should undertake annual updates or refresher training to ensure they have the knowledge and understanding of changes in legislation and directives. Annual refresher training intervals will vary depending on the organisational requirements.

PMVA (Prevention Management of Violence and Aggression) – an essential requirement when working within any mental health environment.

TRACHEOSTOMY CARE – aimed at nurses and care workers who have to care for people with a tracheostomy.

HLR is fully committed to staff learning and development. Unlike other agencies, we ensure candidates are presented with their training certificates upon successful completion of training.
