Who needs training in moving and assisting people?

This course is ideal for all workplace requirements, as it includes safer moving and positioning of people as well as manual handling of objects. The course is designed to meet the requirements and recommendations of the HSE Manual Handling Regulations 1992 as well as other relevant regulations and guidelines. It also includes a module on slips, trips and falls.

ProTrainings are one of the few Skills for Care centres of Excellence where we passed stringent checks to prove our commitment to high-quality training and compliance. We are also able to offer Skills for Care Endorsed qualifications for our classroom and video online training courses ensuring you have an acceptable certificate to prove your compliance.  This means that our training meets the high standards expected by Skills for Care.

It can be taken as an online, blended or classroom course by one of our approved instructors. The online course also acts as a good refresher course for those who just need their skills to be refreshed.
