Manual Handling CPD accreditation is a simply process to gain accredited CPD certification for the persons you then teach. Once you have the qualification for delivering manual handling or have completed a manual handling trainers course, you can then apply for CPD accreditation for the courses you delivery.

There are a number of CPD accreditation bodies including CPD UK, CPD Standards Office, CPD Group or SafeCert CPD.  The process to gain approval is you sign up as a centre which is free, then you would sign up for each course or activity you wish to get accredited, for which there is a fee per course approval usually in small monthly payments.

You would then send in the details of the course you wish to be approved with any lesson plans, PowerPoint and assessments you have, so it can be assessed towards accredited CPD Points. CPD Points are equivalent to 1 CPD Point to 1 accredited CPD Hour of activity.  Therefore each course will be accredited to the value of points to complete that activity or course.

Accredited CPD course examples are as follows:

  • Level 2 Award in Manual Handling Practices (4 CPD Points)
  • Manual Handling at Work (3 CPD Points)
  • Manual Handling Awareness – Online Course (2 CPD Points)

There are unaccredited manual handling trainers courses at low cost but with no standards and no accreditation, the certification would not be recognised by any UK awarding body. The best option is to do an accredited manual handling trainer course from one of the UK awarding bodies. Abertay for example provide a 2 day manual handling train the trainer course at £375 + vat but there are many companies who offer manual handling instructor courses that can be anything up to £700 + vat.

Best practice is to search for a trainer course that is recognised by one of the UK awarding bodies, then you will be assured that the manual handling trainers course has been fully quality assured and assessed for content.
