People Handling Certificate Course

In the healthcare and social work fields, there are many occasions where you or your staff members may need to physically handle or move a service user. This typically happens in situations where you are dealing with those who have health or mobility issues. Safe and proper handling of people in your care is an important skill to learn. Not only does it ensure that your staff members remain healthy and injury-free whilst working, it guarantees that all your service users are treated with dignity and respect.

This course is designed to give you all the information that you need to know regarding people handling. It begins by giving you a brief introduction to the topic, including a review of the relevant legislation. Next, it discusses the importance of conducting risk assessments. Safe equipment use is covered next. This section elaborates on legislation that was introduced previously, to provide you with a complex understanding of the field. Finally, we review the best practices that you need to keep in mind, whenever you move or handle a person.

You will Learn:

  • Why people handling training is so important to any organisation where someone may need physical assistance
  • The numerous pieces of legislation that you should review
  • The two types of risks that exist, whenever you work at an organisation where people need to be handled
  • A few examples of the types of equipment that you may encounter, when moving or handling people
  • A brief overview of the best practices that you need to keep in mind, when handling people
  • How to identify hazards and risks

Benefits of Taking this Course:

  • Learning about the employee and employer responsibilities, when it comes to people handling
  • Understanding the two types of risks that you encounter, when dealing with people handling
  • Learning about PUWER and LOLER, including their applications
  • Understanding what steps you need to take, before you even begin handling a person

Anyone who has an interest in learning more about this subject matter is encouraged to take the course. There are no entry requirements to take the course.

The course is broken down into 4 individual modules. Each module takes between 20 and 90 minutes on average to study. Although you are free to spend as much or as little time as you feel necessary on each module, simply log in and out of the course at your convenience.

You can study the course any time you like. Simply log in and out of the web based course as often as you require. The course is compatible with all computers, tablet devices and smart phones so you can even study while on the move!

Once you have completed all 4 modules there is a multiple choice test. The questions will be on a range of topics found within the 4 modules. The test, like the course, is online and can be taken a time and location of your choosing.

The pass mark for the test is 70%.

If you don’t pass the test first time you will get further opportunities to take the test again after extra study. There are no limits to the number of times you can take the test. All test retakes are included within the price of the course.

Once you have completed your test you can log in to your account and download/print your certificate any time you need it. If you would prefer us to post you a certificate to a UK address, there will be an admin charge of £10 (certificates sent internationally may cost more).

You can either use your Visa, MasterCard, American Express, Solo cards or PayPal account to pay for the online course. Our site uses the latest SSL encryption to ensure your safety. All payments are handled securely by PayPal.

You can begin the course immediately after your payment has been received. You will create your login details during the checkout process. We will also send you an email confirming your login details.

We estimate that the course will take about 2.5 hours to complete in total, plus an additional 30 minutes for the end of course test.

Once you have been awarded your certificate it is valid for life. The certificate does not expire or need renewing.

This course was fun and flexible. I could study it at my own convenience, leaving it and going back to it in between my other commitments. I was then required to answer a few multiple choice questions at the end in order to receive my certificate which is stored in my account so that I can download it at any time. It is a good qualification to add to my CV when looking to work with pets. I really enjoyed it and it will benefit me in my future career plans. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

This is a fantastic course, it is incredible value for money and it will give you all the information you need to be able to pursue the career of Teaching Assistant.

Being able to do it all in your own time makes it a lot less stressful if you're trying to fit it around work and life in general and the addition of worksheets throughout helps you see which areas need improvement before you take the final test.

I've just completed the Level 3 Admin & PA Diploma!

I found the course informative and user friendly to navigate. I had the chance to refresh the skills I already possessed and it introduced me to new ideas and information. It was a good opportunity for me to update my skill set.

A very useful course with the topics very well presented and easy to read and follow. I was able to easily slot the course into my schedule and enjoyed setting time aside to work my way through. I would definitely recommend this course to those wishing to learn something new and for those wishing to sharpen up on previous knowledge.

I ordered the wedding planner course as I am off work and wanted to make use of my time. This course is extremely well set out and easy to follow. The course is broken down into easy to manage modules covering absolutely everything you need to know about being a wedding planner. You can complete these modules at your own pace and you get the chance to review the modules you have completed at any time you wish. The modules take you through the step by step process of planning a wedding including all the pit falls. I am enjoying this course and would definitely recommend it to anyone thinking of going into this area of work. The course gives you some very handy tips on things that you may well not have thought about. So what are you waiting for, sign up for an excellent course at a more than reasonable price.
