Accreditation and certification

The Prevention and Management of Violence and Aggression (PMVA) training we deliver is the PMVA Associates training model. It has been certified by the Bild Association of Certified Training as compliant with the Restraint Reduction Network Training Standards – a set of ethical standards that protect human rights and support the minimisation of restrictive practices. These standards apply to all training that has a restrictive intervention component and provide a national and international benchmark for training in supporting people who are distressed in education, health and social care settings. 

We were involved in the design and development of the PMVA Associates training model from concept to completion pulling together industry leading research, specialist knowledge and a broad spectrum of skills.

We continue to remain a key partner in the ongoing evolution and improvement of the training syllabus taking into consideration new evidence, practice-based learning, regulatory demands and feedback from all key stakeholders.
