Common Questions

  • Will we learn any physical breakaway techniques?

    There are five chapters to this positive behaviour management foundation course before any physical skills take place. We will teach  breakaway techniques that are identified in the training needs analysis. This is a requirement of our BILD Act certification and is in line with current Restraint Reduction Network guidance.

  • Are staff members assessed for competence on this course?

    The short answer is yes. We believe that any course delivering this kind of training should have criteria for measuring people’s ability to put the skills they’ve learned into practice.

    There will be five theory chapters, each with a quiz at the end; we require all participants to pass these before moving onto physical skills which will be assessed in order to fulfil our BILD Act Certification requirement.

  • Is this course BILD Act certified?

    Yes, it is certified by BILD ACT following the RRN Standards. Although this course doesn’t include restraint, we do teach two techniques where a hold occurs. For more information, please contact us. Our certification certificate can be found here.

  • What is the maximum number of participants on this course?

    Due to current national guidance and our certification, there is a maximum of 12 participants on each course to create a more interactive experience.
