Manual Handling Training Courses


*This page is for individuals who wish to book one of our courses in Sandyford or other regional training locations. If you require manual handling training for your team in a healthcare setting (e.g. your Nursing Home) please click here.

Over the years our onsite experiences working in Irish nursing homes, daycare centres and in the community have allowed us to integrate current best practice manual handling techniques seamlessly from training to day-to-day care. Fit For Life is committed to keeping up to date on the latest equipment and training that Irish healthcare needs. All of our therapists receive continuous specialist training that allows us to provide support in complex handling cases, offering advice on systems to suit the needs of the task.


Our manual handling trainers are all senior staff, qualified to at least Fetac level 6 in Manual Handling Instruction. They have many years of practice in long-term care and the community supporting healthcare workers and carers to understand the main manual handling tasks their roles require. They inform and educate on best practice for safe manual handling and can provide advice on new equipment and/or systems that may suit your sites.

* Due to Covid Restrictions we are not currently delivering training to individuals at our training centres but we hope to have courses up and running again in early 2022.*
