Please note that the course will require repeated practice of specific physical interventions.

By attending the course, you agree that this is the case, and you will be expected to sign a declaration during the course that confirms this. Although the trainer will take measures to reduce risk, participants must recognise that there is always a risk of injury when physical interventions are taught and practised. If you are in any doubt about your fitness to take part, then you must seek appropriate medical/occupational health advice.

It is essential that you should wear flat soled shoes (not including sandals, flip-flops or any other open-toed shoes).
