Refresher training can be delivered in the workplace as a bespoke course if the workplace has a suitable area for the training to be conducted.
This course can be modified to meet the requirements of learners that may have physical health related conditions and/or psychological trauma which precludes them from effectively participating in the traditional course approach. This can be offered on a bespoke basis.
This course can be adapted to meet the needs of learners with physical disabilities.
This course aims to be fully inclusive to all, however candidates need to be aware that it is a physical intervention course that requires “hands on” physical contact with other candidates and course tutors.
