Protection for learners
In compliance with Qualifications and Quality Assurance (Education and Training) Act 2012 Part 6, where Chevron College offers training programmes of 3 months duration or more, Learner Protection cover is in place via a relevant financial product, should Chevron College cease to provide QQI programmes before learners have completed awards.
“Excellent opportunity for anyone who has the relevant experience as a healthcare assistant but lacks the qualifications. They provide online courses so that you do not have to attend a full-time college course and once you have the experience you can work while completing the modules through Chevron!”

I would highly recommend Chevron Training to those working and seeking to get qualified in healthcare or childcare.”
