Our Moving and Handling (People) Course has been updated to reflect guidance in Handling of People 6th Edition (HOP6) (2011) / Manual Handling of Children (2011) & Moving & Handling of Plus Size People (2013)

How is our People Handling course different?

" I have been doing mandatory lifting & handling training for approx 20yrs. By Far today's Moving & Handling training was much more interesting & informative. Being able to do a lot more hands-on practical using all of the equipment was great. The trainer made it fun & easy to understand & learn-a course I will remember & put into practice in my workplace"

Course Delegate , Redcar & Cleveland Borough Council February 2015

Our  People Handling course is endorsed by the  Royal College of Occupational Therapists-one of only a few such endorsements in the country- which means that the course, its support materials and assessment methods have been externally verified as suitable for Royal College of Occupational Therapist members -and is subject to an annual quality review to ensure that the course meets delegate needs and is updated to reflect current legislation. You can also benefit from  this quality course either as an open course at FANE  held every month-or a bespoke course on your premises for groups of 6+ held at a time and place to suit you


The course continues to be of good quality with clear learning outcomes. From your submission and annual review it is clear that you have listened to course feedback and changed the assessment to re-balance the practical and learning content of the one day course. We also note that you are using and teaching with the latest technology, which shows good practice’       The College of Occupational Therapists ( April 2013)
