Manual Handling Instructors Recognition Of Prior Learning

For those trainers who are already certified as Manual Handling Instructors there is a process called RPL available to upgrade their certification to QQI Level 6.

The learner will be required to complete an application form detailing their prior knowledge and experience and then we will recommend whether the applicant is a suitable candidate.

We  offer an RPL Preparation Workshop(s) for this purpose. The learner then will attend the assessment day and complete the individual assessments (Examination, Presentation, Manual Handling Demonstration).

Preparation Day Schedule

  • Review of manual Handling course
  • Manual Handling Risk Assessment
  • Lesson planning
  • Demonstration and practice of the correct Manual Handling technique

Assessment day

  • Presentations (15 minutes per person)
  • Test ( 20 short questions)
  • Assessment of the correct Manual Handling technique

Entry requirements:

Learners should have already completed a Manual Handling Instructor course or the equivalent. In order to be accepted for this process learners must complete an RPL application form. The Course Director will review this and advise on whether the learner is a suitable candidate.
Upon successful completion of the requirements, the trainer will be awarded a QQI Level 6 Certificate .
