BILD Act Certified and RRN approved training was developed to ensure there were national standards in restrictive physical interventions training.

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 Network (RRN) approaches.

In England this kind of training can only be delivered by a BILD Act certified 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 / RRN 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 new BILD ACT Certification in April 2023 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 25th 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.”
