The CPD Certification Service was established in 1996 as the leading independent CPD accreditation institution operating across industry sectors to complement the Continuing Professional Development policies of professional institutes and academic bodies.
Our comprehensive, 'business wide' CPD Certification Service accreditation project was completed in July 2019.
Accredited Manual Handling Training Programme
The accreditation process started with an Online Application with The CPD Certification Service Quality Consultant. Following this meeting using their Accreditation Programme Information Form, extensive documents were completed by our Director of Osteopathic Solutions, Gareth Milner supplying The CPD Certification Service information including the following:
Programme aims, objectives, learning outcomes, structure & delivery
UK Team Organisational Chart listing key roles & responsibilities for staff involved in delivery, supporting training, assessment & quality assurance
Assessment method including management of attendee retakes
Precourse & post course management
Version control & change history for all training & assessment materials
Inductions & professional development records & plans for all staff involved in delivery, assessment & quality assurance
Documented quality assurance strategy & procedures/ internal monitoring & evaluation processes/ procedure
This comprehensive process has supported business wide developments including specific Programme improvements with the attendee Manual Handling Instructor (Trainer) Practical Assessment (involving itemised marking criteria) and our Version 2 Manual Handling Instructor (Train the Trainer) Assessor Course Booklet.
We are proud as a team of this accreditation and look forward to working with The CPD Certification Service for the long term and continuously improving our Instructor Programmes for our clients, helping them to reduce their manual handling related injuries with best practice, in-house, bespoke manual handling training and risk assessment programmes ensuring their compliance with UK Health & Safety Legislation including the Manual Handling Operations Regulations 1992.
