Ligature Training – Annual Refresher (2 Hours)

From £60.00

This 2 hour ligature training refresher course is for those who have previously undertaken one of our ligature response training courses. Our ligature training courses are aimed at those who need to undertake “ligature rescue”/ “anti-ligature” / “ligature response” training and who hold an in-date first aid certificate. This annual refresher course is for those who hold an in-date ligature response training certificate and who want to brush up their skills before the need arises.

Sadly, even before the advent of the coronavirus lockdown, suicides by hanging, suffocation & strangulation were the most common of suicide in the UK. In 2022 alone, over 3500 people took their own lives using a ligature. With the recent “cost of living crisis”, suicide attempts have become even more common, making hands-on training even more important.

This makes ligature removal training essential (and in some cases a statutory requirement) for staff & family members who;

  • work within the prison or probation services,
  • work in hospitals, refuges, mental health or crisis intervention sectors,
  • work with young people in residential care & referral schools.
  • are foster carers,
  • work in other higher risk environments,
  • support people with complex needs and who may have issues such as physical and mental health, child welfare, family and relationship breakdown, offending behaviour, historic abuse, bereavement, substance misuse, sexual exploitation, domestic violence, childhood trauma and/or self-harm.

Ligature Training – Annual Refresher (2 Hours)

This 2 hour ligature training refresher course is for those who have previously undertaken one of our ligature response training courses. Our ligature training courses are aimed at those who need to undertake “ligature rescue”/ “anti-ligature” / “ligature response” training and who hold an in-date first aid certificate. If you don’t hold a in-date first aid certificate, our Ligature Response & Basic Life Support course.

This annual refresher course is for those who hold an in-date ligature response training certificate and who want to brush up their skills before the need arises.

Since the Covid-19 lockdown, we have seen a surge in requests for anti ligature (ligature response) training, including this skills refresher course. Our bespoke 2 hour face-to-face refresher course will look at the most recent statistical research and give you hands on practice with a range of ligature cutters (typically around 10 different types). The course then moves on to cover modified basic life support first aid training for those involved in a ligature incident. This includes how to protect the cervical spine in the supine and recovery position, modified CPR for those who have ligated, the use of automatic/automated external defibrillators (AED).

Combined, these will mean that you can provide effective first aid until professional help can take over.

The course is aimed at those working in environments where incidents involving ligatures are a foreseeable risk. So if you’re ever faced with a ligature incident, the training will enable you to act safely and decisively.
