We can now offer a virtual training version of our Manual Handling Train the Trainer: City & Guilds accredited Programme via Zoom – both for in-house events and open events. All sessions will be led by one of our regular trainers and we will strive to continue to make them as interactive and enjoyable as we always have. A wide range of learning methods will be used during the training.

As virtual learning can be an intensive experience, we are happy to adapt the format for in-house events, e.g. you might want to consider 4 x 1/2 day sessions rather than 2 full days for the training. This will give the opportunity to undertake an element of revision or preparation between sessions in order to reduce the overall amount of time spent looking at a screen.

Similarly, we can offer a virtual version of our manual handling training as well as courses such as Display Screen Equipment Risk Assessor certificate and Manual Handling Risk Assessor certificate.

For our 4 day IOSH People Handling Train the Trainer course, we can adapt the first 2 days to be run as virtual sessions. However, the second 2 days would still need to be run as face to face training due to the amount of practical work which needs to be undertaken to ensure correct skills regarding patient handling.

On topics such as our 1 day IOSH Evacuation Chair Train the Trainer certificate and our half day evacuation chair operator training, we are not offering online courses due to the need to undertake physical practical exercises to build confidence and competence in the use of the equipment.

If you would be interested in running an in-house event or attending an open course of this format, please get in touch with us and we can discuss any adaptions which might be needed to meet your own infection control procedures or the Government guidance
