    The full content and depth of this module essentially covers levels 1 to 3, should the full programme be required. If so, the length of training

    is recommended as 2 days in order to benefit from the maximum level of input and gain a higher level of understanding. It can however be

    reduced in terms of level of content which would then reduce the time required for delivery. The role, remit and level of duty of care of the

    delegates are taken into consideration.


    Please do not hesitate to discuss this with me prior to booking. The most suitable and cost effective training package for your needs will

    always be offered.
