Failure to do so will result in you being unable to attend the course or sit the examination and forfeiture of any deposit.
Physical Intervention The physical intervention unit will be taught last and must be passed in order to successfully complete the qualification. This aspect of the course carries risk however; our trainers who teach physical intervention skills are fully qualified and versed in teaching physical intervention techniques and there will be a qualified first aider present to deal with any first aid issues if they occur.
Due to the nature of the physical intervention unit it is paramount that all learners behave in an appropriate manner and failure to do so may result in injury. If a learner does not behave in an appropriate manner this may jeopardise their opportunity to complete the qualification and their payment will not be refunded.
Learners should wear clothing that is free, loose and comfortable.
