Restraint Training

Resolution Education’s Restraint training is a specialised package that caters to emergency response teams, security personnel, healthcare providers, and other roles requiring non-punitive restraint techniques. Under the close supervision of our trainers, our program ensures compliance with state and federal regulations, prioritising the understanding of restrictive practices and the implementation of safe methods to minimise harm.

The training is customisable and can range from basic restraints to more intensive restraints, depending on the industry and situations likely to arise.

Restraint Training is necessary for the safety of certain personnel, and we believe that all employees requiring this level of skill will find our interactive training package effective. Our easy-to-learn restraint techniques will keep both staff and aggressors safe.
