Additional information

Participants must ensure they wear appropriate clothing and flat, comfortable footwear that covers the whole of the foot as you will be actively participating in safer people handling techniques. Open-toed shoes and sandals are not acceptable and you maybe turned away due to health and safety reasons which will then incur a charge.

Please be aware that if you are unable to participate in the practical session you will only receive a certificate of attendance, not a full certificate which assesses your competency and you will have to attend a refresher session at a later date when you are fit and well to have your competency assessed.
