Sample Video: CIS Course Introduction

THIS COURSE HAS BEEN REPLACED BY THE CARE CERTIFICATE TO COMPLETE THE KNOWLEDGE COMPONENTS OF THE CARE CERTIFICATE PLEASE VISIT OUR CARE CERTIFICATE ONLINE COURSE

Induction training in the care sector provides a valuable start to care, workers, new jobs.  The problem has been to have a course that covers enough content to meet the standards in a flexible format.  This ProTrainings course covers the eight standards using informative videos and when used within work training and experience you can easily meet these standards.

Since 2010 the Common Induction Standards (CIS) have been a key part of the early training for all adult social care staff.  The CIS 2010 replaced the CIS of 2005.  The CIS is to be completed before or within 12 weeks from the start of the employment by the employee and they include several key areas.  This course can be completed in one sitting or over a period of time nationally through our approved and monitored national network of instructors.  Care managers need to ensure that employees have met all the standards.

We have built a classroom course and soon a video online course to meet these requirements for employees.  The eight common induction standards are:

  • Standard 1 - Role of the health and social care worker
  • Standard 2 - Personal development
  • Standard 3 - Communicate effectively
  • Standard 4 - Equality and Inclusion
  • Standard 5 - Principles for implementing duty of care
  • Standard 6 - Principles of safeguarding in health and social care
  • Standard 7 - Person centres support
  • Standard 8 - Health & Safety in an adult social care setting
  • Care workers
  • Social workers
  • Temporary care workers

This course comes with 8.0 hours of CPD, although the time to complete the course online may be less than this. Total course time includes 6 hours and 54 minutes of video training as well as knowledge reviews, final test, remedial help and reviewing downloaded material.
