No. The ARC is not a validating organisation and no longer credentials or certifies any other courses. The only courses it validates are courses developed by the ARC (and co-badged with the RC(UK)) because it sets the standards for the program, the teaching scenarios, the instructors, the assessment process and course centres.
Since we have no such control over the standards of other courses we cannot offer any similar guarantee concerning successful participants and do not accept these certificates as equivalent to the ARC courses.
The level of qualification, training and experience needed for any individual clinical role is the responsibility of the employer, not the ARC.
