Once restrictions are lifted and it is deemed safe to deliver face to face training again, we will resume offering manual handling as a face to face training.

The face to face manual handling course is a full day course usually from 9.30am – 4.30pm. The outline of the course is as follows:

  • Module 6: Practical Application: Specific Handling Tasks

Equipment needs generally are bed and hoist with sling, wheelchair van and car if required, wheelchair, slide sheets, transfer belt, swivel cushion, slide board and handibar. Due to infection control requirements, we are also requesting organisations provide masks, gloves and sanitiser/disinfectant.

The group size limit is generally 12-16 and the room size will need to comply with physical distancing requirements for both practical and theory components.

As an in-house delivery, our facilitator Sue Smith, would conduct a briefing call prior to look at specific areas of focus relevant to your needs.

Workshop Costs

Workshop costs for in house delivery are:

Full day NDS Member $2,245 + GST
Full day Non-Member $3,368 + GST

Sue is based in Sydney therefore travel costs from Sydney will be charged at cost to the organisation.
