Manual Handling: Train the Trainer Courses

The Manual Handling Train the Trainer course will equip you with the skills and knowledge you need to confidently deliver manual handling training within your company, whether it’s in person or remotely.

By training a trainer to operate within your organisation, the delivery of new skills, including manual handling, can be distributed throughout the workforce. This is much cheaper than sending individuals or groups for private tuition.

What Are Manual Handling Train the Trainer Courses?

Individuals in physical lines of work in which this kind of training is essential, are required to pull, push, lift, lower, and of course, pick up and carry loads of varying weights and sizes. Actions that without effective manual handling training, pose a serious risk to their bodies.

For businesses who need an in-house trainer, Fit4Work’s manual handling train the trainer courses provide a superior learning experience. manual handling train the trainer

Engaging learners and creating a relaxed atmosphere necessary for effective learning, Angela enables trainees to build their confidence and comfort in the material at a pace that suits them.

Creating skilled trainers, these courses go beyond building a knowledge and understanding of correct and controversial handling techniques, and help learners to grasp the skill of effective instruction, to ensure they’re comfortable communicating training material to their fellow employees.
