This is a virtual version of our traditional City & Guilds accredited manual handling train the trainer course. We have adapted the content to live online training, run by one of our regular trainers via the Zoom platform.

Aimed At

This virtual manual handling instructor 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

What do delegates require for the virtual course?

  • A computer which can run Zoom – both audio and visual elements
  • Access to email – so they can email back the written test sheet during the session


Open courses

  • £495 + VAT for the first person
  • £475 + VAT for any additional people from the same company

In-house courses
If you have 4 to 8 staff requiring manual handling instructor training, consider an in-house course. These can be run on with a greater focus your company handling scenarios. If you prefer, we can run the session as two consecutive days rather than spread over 3 days. The cost of an in-house event is composed of 2 elements:

  • Course cost: £1,795 + VAT
  • City & Guilds registration and certification fees of £90 + VAT per person (maximum of 8 delegates)

Thus, for a group of 8 trainees, the total cost would be £2,515 + VAT

If your company requires a more bespoke package, we can design a course which integrates your specifics. Please call to discuss the suitability of this option and the associated costs.

Instructor Pack

All participants receive an exclusive instructor pack (by email and downloadable content) containing:

  • Comprehensive course manual
  • Lesson plan for suggested training courses
  • PowerPoints which can be adapted for your own use
  • Useful extras e.g. videos, sample test paper, suggested risk assessment forms and guidance
