This Basic Handcuff Training Course is suitable for individuals who are expected to use handcuffs as a form of restraint as part of their operational role.

Can security guards legally use handcuffs in the UK?
Actually, anyone can use handcuffs in the UK legally to detain a suspected criminal, or restrict the movement of a dangerous person. As our blog explains, this includes trained security personnel.
Many security professionals choose handcuff training to enhance their skills and employability. It gives your CV that extra edge, and reassures people you work with that you can confidently prevent dangerous individuals from harming others or damaging property.
The course will also help you learn situation management and best judgement, which means you’ll know to only apply handcuffs when it’s necessary. That’s important, because misuse of handcuffs can open you or your employer up to legal challenges, if someone believes the use of handcuffs was excessive.
For example, handcuffing someone who is arguing with you is wrong, whereas handcuffing an individual who is trashing a store or attacking the public means you are acting in the interest of safety and security, in an effort to prevent harm.
This course gives you the knowledge you need to know when to use handcuffs, and how to do so safely at a professional level.
