We at AMBA training are pleased to introduce the Level 2 Handcuffing Course.This is a one day course designed for individuals who are expected to use restraint equipment (handcuffs) as part of their day to day duties i.e. door supervisors, static security guards, hospital security staff, event security staff, close protection officers etc.
The use of handcuffs is becoming more popular for Door Supervisors as a reliable way of restraining people. However proper training is essential to ensure that full account is taken of the legal and medical implications of their use.
Researches have shown that about 65 to 70 % of resistance occurs after the application of handcuffs. Handcuffing can result in injury of the restrained individual. Proper training and acquisition of sufficient knowledge and skills will prevent these incidents. With the legal implication and risk for injury associated with the use of handcuffs, it is very important that certification be completed prior to its use. Only certified and qualified practitioners who fully understand the concepts involve in the use of handcuff can competently administer proper handcuffing skills.
