Moving and Handling (Customisable Options)

One, Two or Half Day Training Course – Suitable for Nurses, Carers and Support Workers

This course is designed for those on annual update, support workers needing to upskill themselves in this area to support transition into care work, or new care workers as part of their wider training package. Where training is delivered in-house, it may be possible to use your organisation’s equipment to ensure staff are taught on the items they will use daily. However, all our trainers carry with them as standard: Collapsible hoist, slings, slide sheets, turntable, transfer boards, anatomical spine and “lifting man” dummy.
The course can be full or half day, dependent on your general or specific requirements. We are happy to tailor your training to your specific needs and our Training Manager will be happy to discuss your requirements.
