PMVA/Breakaway Training

The importance of de-escalation, recognising triggers, body-language and verbal communication.

This training has been designed by an ENB A74 qualified trainer, in partnership with Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH).
Many hospitals and Trusts now only accept and run this training.

All trainers have a minimum of a Level 3 Ofqual teaching qualification, not a “Train the Trainer” qualification. This ensures that all trainers have a “Government Recognised” teaching qualification.

Mandatory requirement
All candidates are required to complete a Health Questionnaire before attending this course. If you have any medical issues that may impair your ability to participate in the practical sessions of this training, please contact us prior to booking the course to discuss.

This course is aimed at those who already hold a full PMVA (Prevention and Management of Violence and Aggression) Certificate that is due to expire but is still in date. IF your full training certificate has already expired, we suggest that you look at taking our full 3 Day Course.
