Aims The course will show delegates how effective training and instruction can be used as part of a programme of manual handling risk management. The course does not require prior experience of instruction or training, advice will be given during the programme. Delegates will be given a comprehensive reference pack which includes a review of the main legal requirements and guidance on manual handling assessment and control. Delegates will be required to deliver an assessed presentation at the end of the course and on successful completion they will be added to our Register of Instructors and Assessors for a period of 3 years. After this period they will be required to attend our 1 day refresher/recertification course to remain on our register.
