Control & Restraint training (Initial and Refresher)

Our two or three day Initial and one day refresher Control and Restraint training is designed to ensure that your staff only use force when necessary and when force is necessary no more force than necessary should be used. It will allow your staff to ensure that the refractory person is restrained in an safe and dignified way. Also we do not teach your staff, poor or dangerous practices such as taking people to the floor or the ‘basket hold/wrap’. This training is ideal for NHS, care home and residential home staff. The techniques taught are all approved.
