People Handling and Risk Assessment Key Trainer's Certificate (Refresher/Update)

Course Overview

To update your 'Key Trainer's Certificate' and to ensure that you keep abreast of new legislation and developments in manual handling, EDGE recommend a ‘Refresher/Update’ course at least every two years. This two day course will further advance your professional development and manual handling skills, and provide you with a valuable opportunity to trade experience with others.

Who Will Benefit?

This two day course is designed for those who have previously attended the EDGE ‘People Handling and Risk Assessment Key Trainer’s Certificate’ or simliar course. If you have not previously been trained by EDGE you will be required to provide proof of your original qualification (please visit our FAQ section for further details).

Assessment and Certification

Course assessment comprises:

  • a practical skills assessment, which takes place continuously throughout the course;
  • informal Q&A throughout the duration of the course.

Upon successful completion of the course, you will receive a certificate from EDGE which is valid for two years, endorsed by the College of Occupational Therapists and certified by the CPD Certification Service.

Course Aims and Intended Learning Outcomes

By the end of the course you will:

  • have been reminded of and made aware of any relevant changes to legislation which affects you, your job, your employers and employees;
  • have been reminded of the principles of biomechanics and how they can be applied to the efficient movement of clients;
  • have been reminded about ergonomics and anthropometrics as a means for the reduction of manual handling injury;
  • have been reminded of the importance of risk assessment;
  • have been reminded of the commonly known ‘controversial techniques' and why some manouevres have been classified as such;
  • have had the opportunity to practice up-to-date manual handling techniques and to review new handling aids;
  • have had the opportunity to assess practical moves using current assessment tools.

Post-Training Support

This unique service provides invaluable support to you after the course has finished. Our helpful trainers are available to answer any queries you may have once you return to work.
