Evacuation Chair Training Courses
Evacusafe offer two different levels of Professional Certified Training on evacuation equipment. Our courses can be tailored for most types of Evacuation Chair, Transport Chair and Rescue-sled (not only the Evacusafe brand). Our courses give you the peace of mind of knowing how to safely operate the equipment and how to carry out the safe evacuation of mobility impaired people.
Our Key Trainer Course involves an experienced instructor coming to your organisation to train staff to a Key Trainer level, enabling them to cascade the Basic Operator Training (details below) to other members of staff within your organisation. This is a cost-effective way of keeping the skill in-house. This type of course is often referred to as 'Train the Trainer Training'. Not only will this enable you to standardise an in-house training programme, but you will also save money by providing your own courses in the future.
Our Basic Operator Training Course involves a short theory session followed by a practical demonstration in which delegates participate and gain practical hands-on experience of using an Evacuation Chair, Transit Chair or Rescure-sled.
Basic Operator Training is ideal for smaller companies who are constrained by time (a session for four people lasts one hour) or very large companies looking to train large numbers of staff in a short time span.
Online Training Courses
As well as providing courses where our trainers come to your premises to carry out the training, we also offer some Training Courses online. These courses can be taken at a time and location that is most convenient to you.
Due to the low cost at which we are able to offer this training, this often works out the most cost-effective way for large companies to train their staff.

Important Evacuation Chair Training Notice
Please be aware of other companies offering this type of training. They have not been instructed by, or trained by Evacusafe or Environmental Handling Systems and are not endorsed by us in any way. Using our own, qualified instructors is the best way to ensure correct use of the chair, quality of service and training to manufacturer’s recommendations.
