Basic Handcuff Training Course
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. The aim of the course is to give positive guidance to staff regarding the use of handcuffs and serve as a reference for staff in justifying the use of handcuffs both in terms of policy (who and why do we handcuff) and technique (how do we handcuff).
This 1-day course should be considered as a Basic Introduction to Handcuffing and Physical Intervention. It covers both practical handcuffing processes and procedures, as well as the legal implications that must be considered when using handcuffs to restrain an individual.
