Posted on: 19/06/2018 | Categories: Uncategorized

CECOPS has gained the prestigious CPD Certification for all of their training courses!

The CECOPS training courses cover the various assistive technology related services including digital health, telecare, electronic assistive technologies, community (disability) equipment, and wheelchair and seating services.

Uniquely, there are courses for: Planning and Commissioning; Service Provision and; Clinical and Technical aspects.

The training is outcome-focused, meaning it can apply in different settings and countries.

 

All training is based on CECOPS’ Codes of Practice:

 International Code of Practice for Planning, Commissioning and Provision of Technology Enabled Care Services

National and International recognition

Our training already has widespread recognition as, for example, it was included as a requirement for staff to be trained by us in a recent national NHS Supply Chain Framework Agreement for Electronic Assistive Technology, Lone Working Devices and Telehealth.
