Aimed At

This manual handling trainer course concentrates upon the safe handling of materials and goods (rather than patient handling train the trainer, for which we have a separate course). Therefore, it is suitable for most sectors (such as manufacturing, office, construction, distribution, logistics, driver CPC etc) and a wide range of individuals:

  • Managers and supervisors intending to conduct in-house training
  • Consultants and trainers providing services to a range of clients
  • Manual handling instructors wanting refresher certification &/or new ideas
  • Health, safety & training experience are useful but are not a pre-requisite as the course provides everything required


Open courses

  • £625 + VAT for the first person
  • £575 + VAT for any additional people from the same company

In-house courses
If you have 5 to 10 staff requiring manual handling instructor training, consider an in-house course. These can be run on your premises with a greater focus your company handling scenarios. The cost of an in-house event is composed of 2 elements:

  • Course cost: £2,095 + VAT
  • City & Guilds registration and certification fees of £90 + VAT per person (max 10 delegates)

Thus, for a group of 10 trainees, the total cost would be £2,995 + VAT (just £299 per person). We may need to add travel expenses for certain locations.

If your company requires a more bespoke package, we can design a course which integrates your specifics. This can range from us integrating your pictures, videos and practical loads into the sessions through to developing a bespoke package for your trainers to deliver out to your handlers. Please call to discuss the suitability of this option and the associated costs.

Instructor Pack

All participants receive an exclusive instructor pack containing:

  • Comprehensive course manual
  • Lesson plans for suggested training courses
  • USB stick with slide suggestions for 2 handler training courses and many useful extras e.g. videos, lesson plan, sample test paper, suggested risk assessment forms and guidance
