1. Self-Harm Awareness (£9.99 plus VAT)

This Certificated Security CPD e-learning course informs about the nature and extent of self-harming in the UK, identifies vulnerable groups; develops understanding of why people may self-harm and common methods used. It also introduces the concept of a ‘harm minimisation’ approach and provides guidance on how best to support people who have self-harmed or are considered ‘at risk’ of doing so.


2. Recognising Mental Ill Health & Learning  Difficulties (£9.99 plus VAT)

Security Officers are not expected to be able to diagnose specific mental ill health or learning disabilities. However, it is most important that they can recognise signs of a person’s potential vulnerability (i.e. arising from their medical condition) as it will both inform and direct their approach and dealings with them. This Certificated Security CPD e-learning course provides a valuable insight into the characteristic signs, traits and symptoms of people who have mental ill health and learning difficulties.


3. Challenging Behaviour (£9.99 plus VAT)

‘Challenging Behaviour’ is any non-verbal, verbal or physical behaviour (including non-compliance) by service users which makes it difficult for staff to perform clinical tasks and/or poses a safety risk. Challenging Behaviour can range from mildly uncooperative to highly disruptive and dangerous conduct. This Certificated Security CPD e-learning course explains why Challenging Behaviour occurs and how best to prevent it happening.
