All our Manual Handling Training courses are now delivered by FETAC Level 6 accredited instructors.
The FETAC Manual Handling and Patient Handling scheme was introduced following the Health and Safety Authority review of Manual Handling training in Ireland.
FETAC stands for the Further Education and Training Advisory Group. FETAC was set up in 2001 and is the awarding body for further education and training in Ireland.
It is expected that by 2012 all Manual Handling and Patient Handling instructors will have FETAC Level 6 Award in Manual Handling and People Handling Instruction.
Here at AK Safety Management, we have been proactive in our approach to Manual Handling training and all of our Instructors completed FETAC accreditation process almost a year in advance to ensure that we continue provision of good quality Manual Handling and Patient handling training to all of our current and future Customers.
The new system of delivering Manual Handling and Patient Handling training will ensure that all courses delivered are based on FETAC standards and provide fair and consistent assessment of trainees.
