The Moving and Handling of People Train the Trainer course provides delegates with an understanding of the best techniques and processes for safely lifting and moving patients, avoiding injury to the patient, other staff and themselves. They will also learn other essential manual handling skills, including risk assessment and using equipment, such as hoists, to move patients. Alongside this, the training covers a range of trainer elements, so that delegates are able to confidently and accurately teach what they have learnt to other members of staff; this means that the company will benefit from a skilled worker and in-house trainer, enabling them to reduce training overheads.
