Trusted Assessor Training
Our two day course provides competence and confidence to enable staff to assess for, prescribe and install ‘Simple Aids of Daily Living’ Equipment (e.g. toilet surrounds, bath boards, chair raisers, grab rails and much more). Learners will recognise contraindications of equipment provision and will know when to refer to Qualified Occupational Therapists in more complex cases. The course includes practical sessions, for example assessment of chair transfers, toilet transfers, bath transfers, stairs and front door access. An assessment will take place for those seeking Ascentis Accreditation and Certification. Individuals will develop a portfolio to inform their ongoing work.
