Evacusafe > Evacuation chair training courses

Evacuation chair training courses

Evacusafe is the only manufacturer to have their training courses externally approved by both RoSPA & the IIRSM – this is much better than being ‘internally accredited’.  In addition to training courses for Evacusafe’s tracked chairs, transit chairs or Evacuslider rescue mattresses, we are also able to train you on most other brands.  With Evacusafe you can train on-site, where a qualified trainer visits you, or you can train online at a computer at your place of work.

The benefits of evac chair training courses:

Our training courses offer peace of mind by imparting the knowledge and skills needed to safely use evacuation chairs in emergencies. Participants learn about different evac chair types, their features, and their benefits, along with proper setup and usage procedures, including safe transfers for individuals with mobility limitations.

Trainees will build confidence in responding to emergencies, ensuring safety for all. They will also acquire effective teamwork skills, including communication and coordination for safely navigating stairs and uneven surfaces.

Overall, the peace of mind that comes with our chair training courses can be invaluable, helping individuals feel more prepared and capable in the face of emergencies. This can also help to reduce stress and anxiety during these situations, allowing individuals to focus on the task at hand and help ensure the safety of themselves and others.  You can view our selection of evacuation chairs here.

On-site Training Courses

Superior On-site Bespoke, Fully-certified Courses

Our onsite courses can be tailored for most types of Evacuation Chair, Transport Chair and Rescue-sled (not only the Evacusafe brand).  This face to face style of training is very effective.

We will provide you and your staff with the practical, hands-on experience, and the knowledge required to give you the peace of mind of knowing how to safely operate the equipment and how to carry out a safe evacuation of mobility impaired people.

In addition to Basic Operator training courses, we also provide Key Trainer Courses; these are also commonly know as ‘Train the Trainer’ courses and enable you to provide your own future staff training courses.

eLearning Courses

Basic Introductory eLearning Courses

Our e-learning courses are cost-effective and provide excellent value for money enabling ‘own pace learning’, and also an excellent option to refresh the knowledge of those who have previously had onsite operator training.

E-learning courses only provide awareness education. Face-to-face training would be needed in addition in order to complete the all-round skills and knowledge to be able to carry this forward practically in your organisation.

Why a course for two people?  If, for example, the only trained person was off sick or on holiday or perhaps away at a conference or maybe attending an offsite training course, having additional trained persons ensures you have enough staff to provide the duty of care if the worse was to happen.


Please note: our e-learning courses are currently being revamped.

Please call 01256 332723 for further information about our online training options as we are currently revamping our eLearning courses.
