Fifty-two graduates of Allied Health Care Services (AHCS) have been awarded accredited EduQual certificates in home assisted living health care services and health care educational programs.

Established in October 2016, AHCS began offering internationally accredited certificates through EduQual in March 2020.

CEO, Cheri Seargeant states that she recognizes the need for international certification in the field of health care and the necessity for trained geriatric care givers and other fields of health care. She also stated that the health care industry is a fast growing sector that requires trained individuals who can provide health care services adequately both locally and internationally.

The accredited courses now available through AHCS are Emergency Medical Response skills, Certificate in Home Health Care, Phlebotomy Technician Skills and Laboratory Assistant.

EduQual is an umbrella body of the Scottish Qualifying Authority (SQA) and falls as a part of the Federation of Awarding Bodies. Based in Scotland, SQA works across the UK and internationally and works with government organizations, businesses, schools and individually across the world.

A release from AHCS said these qualifications are recognized by universities, professional membership bodies and many other stakeholders in the UK and beyond. Furthermore, EduQual is recognized as an awarding body by Council for the Curriculum, Examinations and Assessment (CCEA) as well as being a full member of the UK Federation of Awarding Bodies (FAB).

Holders of EduQual SCQF credit-rated Diplomas can ‘top-up’ to degrees awarded by many British and international universities, such as University of South Wales, University of Northampton, Binary University of Business and Entrepreneurship (Malaysia) just to mention a few. EduQual learning centers are also in the United States, China, the UK and parts of Africa.

Seargeant also stated that although she is delighted to provide internationally accredited certificates she recognizes the need for local accreditation. She continues to work diligently with the National Accreditation Board in seeking registration and subsequent accreditation.

A new round of courses is scheduled to begin on January 18 at their office at Stoney Ground. They may be contacted at (784) 526-0691 or [email protected]
