Manual Handling Training

Community Therapy provides manual handling training purposely designed for community aged care providers, residential aged care providers and NDIS providers.

We are able to organise a training venue and equipment or provide training on site.

Organisations may also engage with our online training modules either via our LMS or embeded within their LMS.

Training can be organised as a one off or can be scheduled recurring to meet the ongoing manual handling training needs of an organisation.


Available throughout Newcastle, Central Coast & Hunter
