Our Physical Intervention Course (PMVA) would supplement an individual’s skill set and is the next stage after an initial Conflict Management course.  Violence within in the workplace is on the increase and the skills learnt upon this course will give delegates the tools needed to avoid, manage and control aggressive and violent behaviour.

PMVA (Prevention Management of Violence and Aggression) training is now a mandatory requirement for those working in an aggressive or violent setting, and in particular, those that work within a mental health environment and/ or on the front-line.
