Our Moving and Handling (People) Course  is the only one day course in the UK for front-line carers to achieve RCOT  Approved Learning Award status  & 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) & will be further updated when HOP7 is published in December 2021

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"
