Comfort Keepers Learning & Development Department has always concentrated on assisting participants to achieve their goals in a supportive and encouraging environment. We provide the highest standard of training and education to equip home carers with the knowledge and expertise to deal with various situations.

Comfort Keepers have been delivering QQI accredited training courses since 2008 and strive each year for continuous improvement in the quality of our training. We update our curriculum yearly to meet the demands in the ever-changing landscape within healthcare. Each course is recognised as providing the skills necessary for working as a healthcare assistant across many platforms.

Each of the training rooms, located in Comfort Keepers’ offices nationwide, are furnished with the necessary equipment and facilities to allow our carers to practice and become competent and confident in their chosen profession.
