BILD Act Certified and RRN approved training was developed to ensure there were national standards in restrictive physical interventions training. This is currently applied to the health and social care sectors, and our future goal is to also apply it to the education sector as well. 
Our ultimate objective is to reduce the levels of physical restraint vulnerable children and adults currently experience by promoting safer, positive environments with person-centred approaches for defusing challenging behaviours. Timian’s courses are observed, assessed and certified by the BILD Act and Restraint Reduction Network.

Do you require BILD Act Certified training?

If your organisation supports people who may need to be restrained and you are subject to inspection by CQC or you’re commissioned by the NHS, then you will require BILD Act Certified training. In Wales, there is an expectation that training is certified and follows Restraint Reduction approaches.

In England this kind of training can only be delivered by a BILD Act recognised Training Provider or an affiliate.

What is your Pathway to Certification?

Caring for people is the most important thing we teach. If your organisation requires BILD ACT Certified training, we can provide the right pathway for your staff. Our Train-The-Trainer model is the easiest method to get staff equipped with the skills and knowledge required to manage challenging behaviours expected by CQC. Once you have trained instructors, your organisation becomes an affiliate of Timian Learning and Development.

Timian and BILD ACT

We received our BILD ACT Certification in April 2020 (Association of Certified Training) which means our training follows the Restraint Reduction Network (RRN) Training Standards (2019). Certification became mandatory in any organisation falling under CQC inspectorate from April 2021.

We are proud to be able to say this is our 19th year of formal accreditation and certification in the leading national standards.

“Training can only be certified by BILD ACT when they are delivered by – an approved training organisation – using an approved curricula – and be delivered by an approved senior trainer or within an approved affiliate provider organisation.”
