ProMove Product Training

We now offer ProMove Product Application Training that is hands-on and bespoke to your organisational needs. Training can vary from time specific morning or afternoon slots to all day sessions, depending on needs. We are happy to cater for individuals and groups, and sessions will include presentations, video demonstrations and hand on exercises.

The training we provide is based on the ProMove products and can help support customers within the emergency services, healthcare industry, schools and colleges, airports and airlines and facilities management businesses.

Site specific training can be provided and designed specifically for you and your team. The training is based on your product selection and will focus on correct application concentrating on application of the slings, positioning, product maintenance, cleaning and storage. These are product-based information training sessions designed to enhance product understanding and application. Moving & Handling training is included as standard as part of the training.

Our training will help your staff and organisation to improve moving and handling of individuals, enhance efficiency, as well as reduce risks for everyone involved. Providing product training to our customer’s staff, helps build product knowledge, which will result in increased confidence when using the products.
