The Prevention and Management of Violence and Aggression (PMVA) and Management of Violence & Aggression (MOVA) Training course has been designed and developed to meet the needs and expectations of customers whose employees regularly deal with violence or aggression during the course of their work and, who need to employ all the skills from conflict management to breakaway and/or physical restraint. The course is delivered over 3 days and is useful for restraint training for care workers and builds on a frame work of knowledge underpinned by current Law, Regulations and Guidance.

The 4 day PMVA Training course is for those delegates who are working within a high risk environment where more emphasis will be placed on the breakaway and restraint part of the training giving those attending far more practice time.

A requirement of all PMVA candidates is a reasonable level of fitness and general health in order to participate in the physical elements of the course and all candidates will need to complete a fitness questionnaire in order to ascertain this.
