Manual Handling Training Course Overview

Learn the importance of good lifting and moving techniques, and how to avoid injury with our CPD certificated information-packed training.

This is a highly interactive course which allows delegates to gain ‘hands-on’ experience of safe manual handling under the supervision of our instructor.

You will learn different strategies and techniques to minimise risk such as using specialist equipment.

All delegates participate in a practical lifting session with one of our highly experienced trainers. This element of the course is crucial in developing good practice.


After successfully completing the training, each delegate will be awarded CPD certification and earn two CPD points.
