About Our Courses

Our instructors have many years experience working in clinical settings, teaching staff to identify the risk relating to violence and aggression and how to manage it when it occurs.

Our courses are tailored to the individual needs of your organization.

 

How Our Courses Are Designed

Our training consultant will design training scenarios relevant to your sector to make the course content relevant and accessible to those taking part. With this in mind, feedback from participants is welcomed throughout the training process, and our instructors are able to adapt the material being taught to the needs of those taking part.

At VCML we follow the Department of Health's guidance in 'least restrictive practice' and 'proactive interventions’, which the CQC are currently using as benchmark standards during their inspections. Our experts can provide support and advice regarding civil and criminal litigation, to avoid incidents being mismanaged. Our violence reduction training also ensures that your duty of care to both employees and service users is upheld under the Health and Safety at Work Act 1974.

Our training courses are devised in accordance with your specific requirements and include both theory and practical modules. These modules selected, also help to build and design a bespoke course to suit your organisation and the people it serves.

Adaptations

Refresher training courses, can be delivered in the workplace as a bespoke course if the workplace has a suitable area for the training to be conducted. This course can be modified to meet the requirements of learners that may have physical health related conditions and/or psychological trauma, which precludes them from effectively participating in the traditional course approach. This can be offered on a bespoke basis. This course can be adapted to meet the needs of learners with physical disabilities.

This course aims to be fully inclusive to all, however candidates need to be aware that it is a physical intervention course that requires “hands on” physical contact with other candidates and course tutors. Our certificates have a 100% success rate when submitted to all agencies, banks and trusts nationwide. This means that no matter where you submit your certificate, it will always be accepted.

All our trainers are fully qualified to deliver these courses to the Skills for Health standards and guidelines. Vickbenok Crisis Management Limited is fully aligned with Skills for Health.
