ELCAS - Enhanced Learning Credit Scheme

As many of you will be aware the HSE withdrew from directly approving training providers in October 2013. This means that the onus is now on employers to ensure that they are choosing a training provider who meets the new requirements laid out by the HSE and the Skills for Health Council.

This means that employers will no longer be able to check that the training they are receiving is accredited purely by checking that the name on the training organisation providing their certification is on the HSE website. There is a lack of information and clarity as to how an employer can be sure that the training they are receiving is

A. Fit for purpose or

B. Provided and certified by a professional training organisation.

One option which would provide employers with more confidence is to offer certifications through a larger third party training organisation which would enable them to reassure their customer that there training is still monitored and approved.

ProTrainings is able to offer this service to training providers, they will continue to monitor and support trainers as they have been doing under the HSE regulations and ensure that their instructors always meet the requirements and can prove that the quality assurance procedures required are in place.

This means that smaller training providers can have the support, free updates to training materials, free marketing and student manuals and be provided with leads and the various other benefits

ProTrainings centres receive without having to lay out large sums of money for registration. Should you wish to offer Regulated Qualifications you can, as a trainer registered with ProTrainings you can also deliver a range of regulated first aid courses which would be issued by Training Qualifications UK , subject to approval which would be dealt with by a member of the ProTrainings compliance team.

If you are interested in registering with an organisation that offers you more than just certificates, ProTrainings is the right choice for you.
