This course is aimed at anyone who requires a course in manual handling and is ideal for all workplace requirements. The course is designed to meet the requirements and recommendations of the HSE Manual Handling Regulations 1992 and is mapped to the Regulated RQF learning outcomes and is available as a RQF qualification if required at level 2. There would be an additional charge if completing the online course and you would have to attend one of our national centres.
Correct manual handling training will reduce the risk of accidents occurring by identifying and preventing them. Manual handling is not difficult to learn but can save a lot of problems for employers and employees. This course covers the moving of objects, but we also have online and classroom courses for the Moving and Positioning of People

RQF Available

This course is also available as a RQF course, meeting the Regulated requirements. The employer has the choice of a standard First Aid Wales/ProTrainings certificate or a RQF certificate. Both are acceptable, have the same content, and meet the same learning outcomes. RQF level courses are usually needed where funding is required. Phone us and we can advise if needed. If you choose the RQF course, there are additional assessment criteria to be done with an instructor and a small extra certification charge.
