Local councils can set their own standards and some require the Level 4. This qualification is a safeguard for the future either nationally or at local levels by the councils and insurers.
At Lash-Is we require a copy of your certificate and carrying out an RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) assessment.
Once booked, we send out a welcome pack and you are added to our Infection Control module to complete in your own time. On completion of the Infection Control course, you can print a copy of your certificate. That certificate is CPD Accredited. So in effect you will received three certificates which includes the NVQ4.
The course is carried out over a day from 10am – 6pm with a further assessment day depending on prior experience. There will be a powerpoint presentation, then work on models throughout the day which will be used as case studies. There will be an examination which also will be signed off on the day. An in-house certificate is given to advise completion of the upgrade.
We will require 8 case studies for your portfolio.
Maximum number of students in the class is 3.
