ABOUT THIS COURSE

This course is suitable for those working with disabled people within the disability services industry or the health sector. Our Manual Handling course provides participants with the skills, techniques and essential knowledge for supporting people with disabilities. This course covers a wide variety of topics, including but not limited to what is manual handling, risk management, PEBLE, repositioning a client, transferring a client (bed to chair, vehicle transfers etc…), client communication, assessing your environment, support and guidance to walk safely, using a wheelchair, and much more. 

This manual handing course addresses what makes a manual task hazardous for Disability Support Workers and how to manage the risks associated with the hazard. This course also provides refresher training on a variety of mobility and lifting equipment providing participants with hands-on experience in understanding how to use the equipment safely, including inspecting equipment and inspecting the working environment. For those brave enough, our trainers can also provide you with the opportunity to use the equipment as a patient, allowing you to experience what your clients go through when being transferred or lifted.

CPR First Aid Training Concept

Delivered and assessed by experienced accredited nurses and industry personnel who enjoy sharing their knowledge and experience with you, this course has been rated as enjoyable, entertaining, eye-opening and, most importantly, taught with practical, real-world techniques and methods in mind.

At the end of the course, participants are formally assessed and will be provided with a formal Certificate of Completion (Verification of Competence Certificate).

Our standards for trainers are high to ensure that the information you receive during this course is current, practical, and not just taught by anybody holding the accreditation. We believe in providing highly qualified trainers with real and current industry experience.
