MANUAL HANDLING TRAINING COURSE PORTLAOISE
WHY IS THIS THE SAFEST MANUAL HANDLING COURSE IN IRELAND?
- It’s because its clearly unsafe to sit in a classroom for 2.5 to 3 hours listening to a presentation and then do a practical test of lifting a box and then performing a team lift. For around 4 years we have put the part where you sit in the classroom and listen to the presentation and then watch a demonstration into an online presentation that you can listen to at any time that suits you. When you have completed that part, you can call or email us to book into our next Zoom practical class. There you will demonstrate the proper lifting techniques, and if you are successful, we will then email you your Manual Handling Certificate as a pdf. For those reasons it is without doubt the safest Manual Handling Course in Ireland.
HOW MUCH IS OUR MANUAL HANDLING COURSE:
- The course costs €49. This includes the online part, the Zoom class and your Certificate which we email you as soon as you have successfully completed the Zoom class.
WHAT QUALIFICATION WILL I RECEIVE:
- You will receive a Manual Handling Certificate delivered by a QQI level 6 Manual Handling Instructor who has a Degree in Health and Safety along with Level 6 & 7 Teaching qualifications. This is the same certificate as we provide in our classroom-based courses and is valid at any workplace in Ireland. We regularly train people that have online Manual Handling Certificates issued from other Irish based ‘training providers’ that have been rejected by their employers or site agents because they are not compliant with Irish Health & Safety regulations. Also UK or .co.uk online based courses are not compliant with Health & Safety Regulations in Ireland.
MANUAL HANDLING REFRESHER COURSE:
- There isn’t actually a manual handling refresher course available in Ireland. This is because the HSA along with QQI has only authorised training for the full course. Most training companies give manual handling certification for 3 years, after that, it’s always good to get re-certified because manual handling injuries are one of the most common workplace injuries in Ireland and it’s always good to get a reminder of that.
COURSE TIMES & LOCATIONS:
- This is an online course so you can take it at any time that suits you on your laptop, PC, tablet, or phone, you can start it now if you want to. When you have completed the online part, you can then do the practical demonstration over Zoom. This can normally be done the same day but please contact us first if you are under time pressure to get your certificate.
