In recent years there has been a significant increase in civilian security and civilian enforcement officers carrying and using handcuffs. This course has been developed to provide a nationally accredited and regulated training programme to both prepare learners for employment and enhance the skills of those already carrying handcuffs. This programme covers the law and legislation surrounding the use of mechanical restraints (handcuffs) and teaches learners the safe and effective use of mechanical restraints including associated medical consideration.

This Level 3 award is awarded by Highfield Qualifications and sits on the Regulated Qualifications Framework (RQF). The RQF is a qualification framework regulated by Ofqual and CCEA Regulation. It is also suitable for delivery in Wales and is regulated by Qualifications Wales. Upon successful completion of this programme learners will receive a nationally recognised Level 3 Award in the Safe Use of Mechanical Restraints (Handcuffs) (RQF) Certificate
