How often should I refresh my training
Positive handling, use of force, holding, handling and restraint is an unregulated industry. Some companies will give you a certificate that states you only have to refresh every two or three years for example. Sounds cost effective and glamorous? Well it doesn't really mean you're covered and there is no government body for this type of training so all we can go on is what the most relevant law and legislation says on the matter and try to establish what is "best practice".
