Health and safety
Guidance: The client will be responsible for providing a suitable and safe training venue.
Further Health and Safety Guidance is available upon request.
There is always a risk of injury during training, especially where physical skills are taught. Exclusive Training reduces this risk as far as possible through careful programme design and the use of skilled and experienced trainers.
The client should ensure that delegates are physically and mentally fit for ordinary duties and to undertake the training. In order to protect the medical, emotional and psychological welfare of staff, clients must not send any individuals on to courses who may be suffering, or likely to suffer, any post-incident trauma. Delegates must also have a responsible attitude to the participating in the training.
The client is to inform Exclusive Training of any delegates with special needs and to provide suitable information, equipment or services that may be required (i.e. interpreters, disabled access).
Venue: The training venue provided must be appropriate in size and equipped for delegates to move freely in scenario work and, where applicable, for physical skills practice with a partner.
Exclusive Training reserves the right to cancel/postpone training if the venue is considered unsuitable for safe and effective training and to charge a full cancellation fee accordingly.
Trainer and support material
Exclusive Training will be responsible for providing a suitable and fully briefed trainer, electronic equipment as required, all other training equipment, support materials, delegate feedback forms and support notes.
All Exclusive Training trainers/Instructors are qualified to National requirements and the company commits to providing the same quality of trainer during client programmes. Wherever practicable Exclusive Training will seek to notify clients of proposed trainer/s and provide the same trainer/s but reserves the right to change trainers.
As part of a safe system of work, all delegates are under an obligation in law to comply with the requirements of the trainer whilst undertaking physical skills training. Any delegate who deliberately or recklessly puts themselves or others at risk of injury will be excluded from training and may render themselves liable to criminal or civil litigation as a result.
Should the behaviour, conduct or language of a delegate become so disruptive to the learning of the group, the delegate may be requested to leave the course or be expelled.
Delegates must refrain from consuming alcohol during any refreshment or meal breaks and comply with legislation relating to smoking.
Any media coverage/involvement in Exclusive Training must be formally agreed.
Group size and trainer ratio
To ensure the highest quality and safe learning environment the maximum number of participants and trainer ratio for each course is:
Level 1 to 2
Up to 20 candidates (except SIA)
Level 3 and including physical intervention
One trainer to 12 candidates
Two trainers to 20 candidates
One trainer to a group of 10
Physical intervention trainers
Client trainers who have taken on physical intervention skills must practise the skills on a regular basis with other qualified team members. Such training must be recorded. In addition any injury, near miss or other incident must be recorded.

Exclusive Training will administer the issue of certificates provided by the relevant Awarding Body and will notify clients when refresher training is due.
