Due to the pandemic, we are currently not running any face to face courses, and unfortunately, the Awarding Organisations do not allow us to run this course online, due to the practical elements.


However, we can run this virtually - but unaccredited. You would receive the Ofqual regulated certification for Principles of Manual Handling, and a CPD Accredited certificate for the whole of the course.


Upcoming dates for this are:

* Wednesday 7 April 2021: 10:00 - 12:30 & 13:30 - 16:00 and Thursday 8 April 2021:  10:00 - 12:30 (BST)

* Thursday 3 April 2021: 10:00 - 12:30 & 13:30 - 16:00 and Friday 4 April 2021: 10:00 - 12:30(BST)

* Monday 16 August 2021: 10:00 - 12:30 & 13:30 - 16:00 and Tuesday 17 August 2021:  13:30 - 16:00 (BST)
