This course is intended for someone wanting to train as a new Manual Handling Instructor, or for an existing Instructor who has not attended a refresher course for a number of years and wishes to re-train.
Our 3-day Manual Handling Instructor course is designed to focus on developing delegates’ practical skills techniques; therefore many of the teaching sessions involve practical interaction. Time is set-aside at the end of each day to consolidate and revise what has been taught during the days training. The final day includes a revision session and a written appreciation test. Certificates are issued for successful completion of each course.
- Cover the requirements of the Manual Handling Operations Regulations (1992).
- Provide delegates with a broad understanding of functional anatomy and the causes of back pain.
- Equip delegates with sufficient background theory and practical appreciation to carry out basic instruction in manual handling techniques within their organisation.
