Our Moving & Handing Course is designed specifically to train people in the correct way of handling individuals with mobility issues. The course focuses on learning the principles of safe handling through demonstration, theoretical assessment and practical participation.

Conducted by our experienced training manager, Mark, the Moving & Handling Training will give participants the opportunity to carry out safe moving and handling techniques using a range of equipment in different scenarios, whilst highlighting the importance of Risk Assessment and the dangers of incorrect practice.

The course is ideal for those working in the care sector and in residential homes. Although the courses we offer are not accredited, there are many advantages to taking the Moving & Handling Training Course. As healthcare professionals like to see evidence of training and qualifications, any training and further development can help to boost CVs and secure employment in the care industry. Our office is located a very short distance from Leicester Railway Station, with onsite parking available.

The Manual Handling course will be an all-day course. This gives us the time needed to adequately cover the practical demonstration of various bits of moving and handling equipment and the completion of assessments. View a lesson plan of the day for more information.
