Open Courses

We run a number of Open 'Train the Trainer' courses throughout the year. A 2 day Physical Intervention course and 1 day Soft Restraint Equipment course.

Even though these are Train the Trainer courses those delegates who simply wish to learn the skills and pass the course for themselves to assist them in their work can attend at a reduced rate for each course.  You will receive a standard certificate confirming you have successfully completed the course together with a number of resources. 

Those attending the Train the Trainer will receive a trainer award certificate and associated resources.

Alternatively, please contact us to pay on invoice.
