Jubilee Community Care is committed to providing our staff with an excellent and diverse training program. It is mandatory for all employees and volunteers to attend a two-day training program each year to attain a minimum standard of knowledge, skills and competency.
Each year this training includes Manual Handling & Workplace Health and Safety; Fire safety; Infection control; and Medication management training. Also covered each year are a variety of topics relevant to the industry and of importance to our clients and staff.
