The course covers:

A basic knowledge of key legislation affecting the moving and handling and care of objects and people
Anatomy of the spine and how to reduce the risk of spinal injury by implementing safe handling principles
The importance of good sitting posture
Knowledge of a range of safe moving and handling assisted mobility techniques, i.e. assisted standing techniques
Techniques to assist someone getting in and out of a bed.
