Open Courses

We run a number of Open courses throughout the year in Physical Intervention and Soft Restraints.

You will see below that we label these as Train the Trainer courses BUT 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 certificate confirming you have successfully completed the course together with a number of resources. Choose the BLUE 'Buy NOw' buttons to book and pay for the course.

Those attending to become a trainer will receive a trainer award and associated resources. To book you should use the YELLOW 'Pay Now' buttons.
