Take this course to become more aware about the reasons why it is important to move people safely.

This course is ideal for all workplace requirements, as it includes safer moving and positioning of people as well as manual handling of objects.  This is a shorter version of our full course.  We recommend that you take our level 2 course rather than this course if you work in any care environment.  

This course does NOT include practical hoist exercises nor as much practical training as it is just aimed as an awareness course, increasing knowledge in moving techniques rather than practical experience. 

National MedicAid are one of the few Skills for Care centres of Excellence where we passed stringent checks to prove our commitment to high-quality training and compliance. We are also able to offer Skills for Care Endorsed qualifications for our classroom and video online training courses ensuring you have an acceptable certificate to prove your compliance.  This means that our training meets the high standards expected by Skills for Care.

This National MedicAid Qualification is also endorsed by TQUK, who are an Awarding Organisation regulated by Ofqual. This gives an extra level of appreciation on this National MedicAid qualification. You can buy an endorsed certificate if you need one, once you pass the course. You do not have to buy this extra certificate and the course is the same whichever option you choose. 

The content of this and all our courses has been independently certified as conforming to universally accepted Continuous Professional Development (CPD) guidelines and come with a Certified CPD Statement as well as a National MedicAid Certificate and for online courses an Evidence-Based Learning statement.
