  • Greatly enjoyed the 2 days. The course was run by an excellent trainer in a very friendly and interactive manner. We covered plenty of ground regarding technical issues and trainer techniques - but in an enjoyable manner. The group gelled very well and their mixed backgrounds and experience levels added value to the course

To take into account

The course is suitable for participants from a wide range of backgrounds. Health and safety management experience as well as training qualifications are useful but are not a pre-requisite as participants will be trained in both the technical and the training related issues.

Course programme

Content review:

This manual handling instructor training course is a 2 day City & Guilds certified qualification. It provides the technical knowledge, training skills and course material required by manual handling trainers to design, develop and deliver effective manual handling training. It is one of the best attended manual handling trainer training courses due to its key benefits:

  • nationally recognised certificate for manual handler instructors
  • caters for a range of experience levels
  • highly experienced instructors
  • ongoing support provided
  • includes a unique manual handling trainer training pack with everything you need
  • manual handling assessor training included in course

The course is ideal for a wide range of trainers, from those with limited knowledge of manual handling, training and health & safety through to those who are already conducting handler training but want some fresh ideas and techniques to integrate into their programmes &/or want a refresher course. All groups will benefit from the confidence generated in their abilities by achieving City & Guilds certification.

Participants receive a unique manual handling instructor's pack with everything required for running manual handling training sessions. As well as a comprehensive course manual with the technical information, participants receive a cd containing suggested programmes for running 1. 5 to 3 hour training sessions, hard copies of lesson plans and useful extras such as test and assessment sheets.
