Soft Restraint Kit Training
The Soft Restraint equipment is not issued or sold without certified training. This has been a key issue with the nationally and internationally established credibility with the device.
The training programme is tailored to ensure it is “profession specific” and based on the needs and requirements of your staff and service users.  We provide both end-user and train the trainer courses.

Train the Trainer Open Courses

Due to the current pandemic all our face to face training is now on hold until we are all able to resume our daily lives.  


During this time we want to continue to support our past, present and new customers and so we are offering the option to extend your certification for 3 months or your can refresh or have new training delivered via our new online courses. ​

The theory aspect of our course is available for you to complete online. This means that we then only have to to complete the physical part of the training in person, when it is safe to do so, thus saving you time.

Details of the online courses we are offering to both individuals and organisations can be found in our online shop here. 

In person training will resume when it is safe to do so.
