This is the only qualification accepted by the HSA for manual handling trainers in Ireland. You must complete QQI Level 6 Manual Handling Instructor course if you want to become a manual handling instructor.
It provides learners with the knowledge, skills and training resources to train others. All learners will receive all the training materials required to deliver manual handling training. Some companies choose to do their own manual handling training in-house. This can allow for flexibility in training schedules and ad-hoc training reducing the expense of bringing in an outside trainer. This course is also great for free lance trainers who want to become a manual handling instructor and offer manual handling to their clients.
