Control and restraint is a course that covers the very last resort option that can be used in extremely dangerous situations.

The techniques taught within the session are fully hands on, up close and personal approaches that include low, medium and high levels of control and restraint.

Course topics

During the training, every attendee will be taught how to control and restrict someone’s movement; they are also shown the best ways to move the person and how to safely hold someone down on the floor in order to minimise risk of injury to them and to the trainee.

This course is most frequently attended by staff from the NHS, mental health workers and those who work within security.
