Safeguarding for Dental Care Professionals

 

 

 

 

How Online Safeguarding and Child Protection Training Works

SAFE operates a training credits system where organisations can take advantage of volume discounts by purchasing a number of credits that they can then allocate to courses as required. Credits do not expire and can be used by allocating them to individuals in the practice any time. Administrators have visibility of the status of safeguarding training across the practice.

1 training credit = 1 training course.

When you click 'Buy Now' simply change the number of credits to the number of courses you require. For example if you require both child protection and adult safeguarding you will need to purchase two credits. If you are the lead or deputy you will need all four courses and therefore four credits. If in doubt call us on 01379-871091.

Customer Comment: I thoroughly enjoyed the four courses I did. I had been putting it off as I thought it would be time consuming and irrelevant, however the opposite was true. The time went very quickly and I found the courses to be both relevant and very interesting. Thank you for making it so enjoyable and worthwhile Vivien Brown - Practice Manager Harland & Dear Dental Practice.
