Employed properly, physical restraint skills can resolve or defuse a conflict situation quickly and effectively.  Employed incorrectly, or at an inappropriate time, they can expose you or others to unnecessary risk, or leave you open to legal action.

We use the best instructors that are committed to training you in the best current practice. They combine an expert knowledge of legal and health and safety considerations with a wealth of practical experience.

The courses we offer are:

  • BTEC Level 2 Intermediate Award in Physical Restraint Practice
