Additionally it meets the knowledge requirements as defined by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) for recognising an individual at Level 2 "Designated Status" for the administration of medicines in social or domiciliary care settings.

This is the second BytSyz e-Learning course I have completed. I am as impressed by the quality of the content of this course as I was the Level 3 Dementia course studied in 2010. The modules were very clearly set out and the activities brought the learning to life. The very clear statements re: this course providing knowledge only and the need for observation of competence to safely administer medicines (except those requiring specialist techniques) is important. I will be recommending this course to colleagues and look forward to receiving my certificate.
Thank you again Bytsyz, another instructive and well-designed course!

I found this Control and Administration of Medicines (accredited) Level 3 online course very good. It was appropriate for my needs and very informative. The modules were set out clearly and easy to work through. I liked being able to do the trial assessments before taking the plunge and going for the final assessment, as you only have one chance at this I did lots of practice. I gained a lot of knowledge and would recommend this to my colleagues.
