Frequently Asked Questions

Who is this Manual Handling Instructor refresher course intended for?

This online manual handling instructor refresher course is specifically designed for individuals who have previously completed the QQI Level VI Manual Handling Instructors course. This course serves as a vital update and reinforcement of skills and knowledge for these professionals. It is intended to ensure that instructors remain up-to-date with the latest techniques, regulations, and best practices in manual handling. By participating in this refresher course, instructors are able to maintain their proficiency, ensuring they continue to deliver high-quality training and guidance in the workplace, thereby promoting safety and efficiency in manual handling tasks.

Can I complete this course if I do not have a QQI VI Manual Handling Instructor certificate?

No. This manual handling instructor refresher course is intended for trainers who have already completed their QQI Level 6 Manual Handling Instructor Training. Completing this course is not a substitute for the QQI certificate. This training is designed to enhance your existing skills and knowledge, and to help maintain your competence as an instructor.

How Long Does my QQI Manual Handling Instructor Certificate Last?

Like most professional qualifications your QQI Manual Handling Instructors Certificate lasts for life. However, having a certificate does not necessarily mean you are competent to deliver manual handling training. It essential that you keep your skills fresh by delivering training on a regular basis and ensuring that your knowledge and skills are up to date.
Completing our manual handling instructors refresher training is the ideal way to maintain that competence that is required to be a professional manual handling instructor.

What type of certificate will I get with my Manual Handling Instructor Refresher course?

You will receive a certificate which is issued by Guardian Safety. The certificate will state that you have successfully completed your manual handling instructor refresher training. As with your QQI certificate, there is no expiry date on this cert either.
