It is a 4 day course in the classroom, but you need to spend a full day before the course starts reading the pre-course material and completing the workbook that goes with it. Both are on our website. You will be doing an exam based on this home study, so it is not possible to pass the course without doing it! The workbook can be printed out and brought to the training or you can just make notes of your answers and bring them to the course.
You will spend one day doing the practical element of Physical Intervention. This involves physical activity and some risk. To minimise the risk we insist on a strict code of behaviour and limiting practice only to techniques that we teach from an SIA approved programme. Candidates must wear appropriate clothing for this day (eg. trainers, track suit). If you have any health concerns please phone or email in advance of the course. You will also be asked to complete a health questionnaire on the course.
