Breakaway Training

This breakaway training teaches staff how to protect themselves when positive behaviour support fails and a physical attack happens.

We will teach a baseline knowledge. The remainder of the course can be tailored to your companies needs.

Delegates must be medically fit to partake in this course due to the physical activities undertaken.

As I have told others... It is the best, most informative training I have ever attended
