Comprehensive training on manual handling
Our online manual handling course is suitable for:
- Staff working in community aged care or NDIS
- Staff working within residential aged care facilities and hospitals
- Carers looking to increase their skills
- Sole trader health professionals working in the community
- Informal carers such as family and friends
We created our online course as many community aged care and disability organisations reported to us that they have difficulty scheduling face to face manual handling training for their mobile workforce.
Our online course can be completed anywhere, on any device and saves your progress. This is particularly important for mobile workforces as it allows training to be completed in the field between clients or in the event of appointment cancellations.
We are able to coordinate bulk enrolments of an organisations workforce and have discounted rates for bulk enrolments – click here to enquire.
