Dear M,


Thank you for your question.


I am certainly not an expert on the qualifications to become a Care Quality Commission (CQC) inspector but all the information that you need is on the CQC website.


You should look at their website where they have a whole section devoted to “CQC jobs: Opportunities in Inspection.”




I would suggest that any further questions you have about becoming a CQC inspector you should address to CQC.


Best wishes,
