Handcuff Training Course
Who is the course designed for?
This handcuff training course is designed for staff who from time-to-time may have to use handcuff restraints as a temporary immobilisation device to preserve and maintain the safety of the individual concerned.
Following the need to restrain an individual who is then assessed as being required to be placed into handcuff restraint, they need to be safely applied and removed.
Ideally attendees will have previously received some form of Conflict Management and Physical Intervention training or an equivalent experience of both.
Refresh conflict management (knowledge check)
Discuss the law relating to the use of reasonable force
