Personal Letter From The Desk of Mark Dawes

“Dear Friend,

Thank you for visiting our page and for your interest in becoming a properly qualified Physical Restraint/Physical Intervention Instructor, and in the interest of honesty, transparency and authenticity, I thought I should share something with you, as I’d like to be honest with you right from the start.

We are a training provider and I would love for you to make the decision to choose us as your preferred training provider, but I am genuinely not interested in trying to sell you a course (and that may sound strange, but please bear with me for a minute or two so that I can explain why). 

I am actually more interested to know why you want to be a restraint trainer, because I want to make sure that you make the right decision for you, and if that means that what you want isn't what you actually need, I will be honest and upfront and tell you, so that you do not waste your precious time and hard earned cash.

Now, you are probably thinking to yourself "Why would this guy do that? What's the catch?". 

Well firstly, there is no catch. I genuinely and sincerely want to help you make the right choice and decision for you and the reason I want to do that is because I believe that it would be the right thing to do. Secondly, if you do decide to train with us then I will be one-hundred percent committed to be there for you, when you need us to help and support you long after the training has ended and that takes a lot of investment of time, money and resources on our part. That's why it's important. 

Starting your journey as a physical restraint instructor may be a daunting one for you and I know, because I've been where you probably are now and I can remember the problems I had in trying to decide what would be the best course to do, who I should train with and who not to, what happens if I pay all that money and I realise that I've made the wrong decision, what if I need help and support after I've been trained, etc.

I also know, probably just as you are experiencing now, that a lot of training providers will be all to quick to tell you that their system or certification is the best because they simply want to flog you a place on their course.

Oh, and be very careful about taking advice from people who have never run a successful business. That’s like taking driving lessons from someone who has never driven a car! Now that may sound perverse, but so many people, just like you, do just that. They take advice from friends and family who have never run a business or from someone in business who isn't at the top of their game! 

I learned something that has been of benefit to me in my journey and it is this: "if you want to succeed and be the best, in any walk of life, find someone who has already succeeded and who is the best at what they do, and learn from them". Quite simple really. 

And this is where we are different. You see, I’m not just in the ‘restraint trainer business’, I’m in the business of relationships, of helping, supporting and enabling others, just like you, to be the best at what you intend to do. I actually (genuinely) care about you, what you want to achieve and why you want to achieve it, because I want to help you live life on your own terms, so that you can give yourself and your family the freedom you  all desire and deserve; such as the freedom to live where you wish, spend more time with your family, follow a passion you love and live without any regret. 

This is why we provide everyone, who invests in training with us, with as much support and help as possible. To this end, we run a Closed NFPS Trainers Only Group and a Closed Coaching and Mentoring Group on Facebook, where I personally teach you the business, marketing and mindset strategies we use that have allowed our business to grow and survive the worst two crises in the last thirty years’: the recession in 2000 – 2001 and the financial and housing crisis in 2007 – 2008 and what we have learned from that is how to survive the current Covid 19 pandemic, that we are currently going through.

The benefit to you in all of this is that we have been here for thirty years and we’ll be here for you in the future, so any investment you make with us is not going to be lost.

However, we also realise, and appreciate, that our approach is not for everyone. 

So, if you are someone who is only interested in a certificate or the cheapest priced course, then sadly we are not the right fit for you, but there are plenty of other organisations out there that I am sure will provide that level of service for you.

However, if you are someone who is seriously looking for a lifelong relationship with an organisation that genuinely cares for the people it trains, people like you, that will give you all of the help, support and guidance you need to grow and develop as a trainer or your training business, and help you achieve the freedom you truly deserve, then we are probably a good fit for each other.

So here’s what I suggest. Let’s schedule a one-hour phone call or a video call over Zoom or Skype to discuss how to get you from where you are now to where you want to be. This way you will have the opportunity to ask me anything and I get the opportunity to speak to you in person, get to know you a little better, help you to identify what your goals are and help you move more efficiently and effectively towards them. 

This process has helped so many people make the right decision and also avoids making costly wrong ones.

There is absolutely no obligation on your part to commit to anything (and I give you my word that I will not attempt to sell you anything) but I am one-hundred percent sure that I can clear up any confusion for you, give you the advice you need and at least give you a clear idea of what you need to do and what you should avoid doing, to help you achieve your desired goals.

Now if you are still wondering "Why would this guy I’ve never met do this for me? What’s the catch?", I can assure you that all I want to do is demonstrate to you why we are different from all of the other training companies out there and the best way for me to do that for you is by helping you, because that’s what my true passion is. 

Then maybe, at some stage in the future, if and when you decide that you do want to train with someone, I’d like you to consider us as your someone.That’s it! And think about this for a minute...... you would never buy a car without test driving it first, so why don’t you take up the offer of test driving us (so to speak)?

So, if you’d like to arrange your 1 hour strategy call with me simply click on the blue button on this page and let's start you on your journey to where you want to get to. 

In the meanwhile, please look at the rest of the information on this page about what the course involves, where it is held and also look at the reviews we get, especially what others who have trained with us actually say about us.

Then, when you are ready for a strategy call, get in touch and let’s arrange that for you. 

Best Regards
Mark Dawes”
PS: Check out these post below to see what I mean ....

Let's Arrange To Find Out a Bit More About Each Other & Then You Can Decide Whether Or Not This Course Is Right Fit For You...

You wouldn't buy a car without doing your due diligence, which includes speaking to the person selling it would you? So don't invest in a course without doing the same. 

Gain A Massive Advantage Over Your Competition By Being Able To Deliver Training That Is More Legally Defensible Than The Rest

A major benefit for you when you train with us is that you will receive training that is legally defensible.

You will see and hear from some of the greatest legal minds in this country, such as: Michael Mansfield QC, Gary Slapper, John Wadham, and of course the indomitable Eric Baskind (who has carried out over 4,000 expert witness reports for court, so he certainly knows what he’s talking about).

It covers every aspect of law that you need to know about as a qualified and competent physical restraint trainer, because it means that you can teach safely in the knowledge and with confidence that what you are saying is legally correct.

And if you consider that these eminent legal professional charge a minimum of £250 - £500 an hour, you will be receiving thousands of pounds of legal training absolutely free. 

Over the years we have spent tens of thousands of pounds interviewing and gaining input some of the most eminent lawyers in the UK to ensure that you receive the most legally accurate training available, which means that you can be better than your competition.

Learn To Teach Safely Whilst Minimising The Risk Of Injury To Your Learners That Will Reduce Your Risk of Being Sued For Negligence

Teaching physical restraint also comes with it's risks and because of the nature of the activity people can get injured if the training isn't supervised and run safely and that can end up with a trainer being sued for negligence - but don't worry, that won't be you!

In almost thirty years of training delivery we have never been prosecuted or sued. This is because of our professional approach to managing the risks associated with the activity and on our course you will learn how to reduce that risk to you too. 

You will also receive copies of all of these risk assessments in your training material that have been developed and checked by health and safety professionals. 

This means that you will have a safe system of work and safe working practices to follow, that are already clearly laid out for you and which we will show you how to use on the course.

We will also give you all of the documentation that you will need to deliver your training in a safe and professional manner, which will significantly reduce the risk of someone being injured during your training, therefore massively reducing the risk of your being sued for negligence in the courts.

In short, you don't have to produce anything. It's all done for you. This saves you a massive amount of time and money in figuring out what to do, finding someone who is properly qualified and competent to do it, waiting for the work to be completed and paying them for the work done.

When you consider that the hourly rate which organisations have to pay the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) if they are found to be in material breach of health and safety laws has increased from the 6th April 2019 from £129 to £154 per hour, you can imagine the expense. 

Based on those figures, a forty hour investigation would cost you £6,160.00 - not including any fines, prosecutions charges and court costs. 

Teach Techniques That Have Been Medically Reviewed That Give You Another  Advantage Over Your Competition

The training you will receive has also been medically reviewed by Dr. Tony Bleetman, who is one of the preferred Home Office medical specialists in the use of force, who has been involved in numerous cases of restraint related injury and death and who currently reviews restraint programmes all over the world.

What this means is that the techniques and skills that you will be taught and which you will go on to teach to your students, have been medically reviewed by one of the most respected medical professionals in the UK today.

And if you’re looking to work with children and young people, the new guidance states that the training you provide and the techniques that you are going to be offering, must be fit for purpose with children and young people and there must be a medical review to support that.

People Are Still Dying In Restraint Because of Poor Training And Outdated Techniques - Don't Let That Be You!

I'm sure that you will have seen the sad death of George Loyd, who was killed by a police officer in the USA, who knelt on his neck for over nine minutes. 

Positional asphyxia is a common reason why people die in restraint and the UK has had it's share of restraint related deaths too. One of the main reasons is because trainers are still teaching certain techniques that increase the risk of death in a person being restrained and as an expert witness I have also been involved in providing evidence in court cases where people have died during a restraint.

Imagine for a moment getting a call to say that someone you have trained has restrained someone and they have died in restraint. Just stop and think for a moment of how you would feel if you got that call and the thoughts that will be running through your head. Imagine yourself having to go to court and be cross examined by a barrister whose only job is to discredit you in public, and it's not just going to Court that will cause you and your family immense stress and worry, it will be the build up to that day, because it can take years for a case to get to court and all that time you will have to live with that uncertainty. 

I am proud of the fact that we have (in many cases) led the field in reducing this risk and this is why the training that you will receive covers this topic in depth. It is fully up to date with the medical, legal and scientific evidence on what is likely to cause a restraint related death, what positions are more dangerous than others (and that may not be what you think) and how a restraint related death can easily be prevented.

I never want you to be in a position like the one I have described above, because I have seen first hand what it does to good people like you. This is why you will receive the best training in this area based on the world leading research produced by expert medical professionals and leading lawyers and scientists. 

This module alone will provide you with all of the information and knowledge you need to ensure that you are providing training and giving advice that is not going to lead to a death.
In this module you will get access to a complete lecture from Dr. John Parkes who has carried out ground breaking research into restraint positions and lung function at Coventry University.

His scientific research blows away the myths and misconceptions relating to positional asphyxia and shows you exactly which restraint positions are the most dangerous.

This module is invaluable because it helps save lives. 

Companies are currently being fined millions of pounds for deaths in the workplace and if found guilty you can also receive a prison sentence. 

But, when you train with us the risk of that is absolutely minimal to you because you will be trained by experts who have worked on many restraint related death cases, so know first-hand what needs to be done to prevent a death from restraint. 

Is This BTEC Level 3 Award Course Suitable For You?

This BTEC Level 3 Physical Restraint Award Trainer Course course is suitable for you, if you are looking to gain a proper qualification, as a properly qualified BTEC Level 3 Physical Physical Restraint Trainer (also known as MVA or PMVA Trainers in the NHS).

Whether you are in the NHS, Care Sector, Education Sector, Police or Prison Service, or in the Security and Door Supervision Sector, this course will qualify you to teach and provide you with all of the underpinning knowledge to teach in your specific sector, and you get lots of back-up and loads of additional resources too.

And, even if you are a trainer with a different organisation, adding this qualification to your CPD (Continual Professional Development) record would be a great thing to do to help enhance your knowledge whilst gaining valuable CPD points.

But it is so much more than that ..........

What Does The Course Involve?

The BTEC Level 3 Physical Restraint Instructor Award Course is a 50-hour course comprising three BTEC Level 3 Units.

These Units are:

Unit 1: Risk Management and Assessment

Unit 2: Physical Skill Instruction

Unit 3: Delivering Physical Restraint Training Sessions

The Two Main Areas

This course itself is broken down into two areas:

1. Pre-course learning, and

2. Attendance of a 5 x day course.

Pre-Course Learning (Estimated Time 15 – 20 Hours)

The pre-course learning is all done online and covers the following areas, which form all of Unit 1 and part of Unit 2 and is designed to help you:

1. Understand the Law in relation to the Use of physical force.

2. Understand Health & Safety Legislation in relation to use of force training.

3. Understand how to reduce the risk of harm and fatality when using force.

This work takes approximately 15 – 20 hours to complete (dependent on how slow or fast you work, of course).

All the resources are provided for you on the online platform (which you will receive login details for, immediately you book your place) to enable you to successfully complete the pre-course work and send the workbook back to us for marking prior to the course commencing.

To see the online resources that you will get access to watch the video below!

The Five-Day Attendance Part

The attendance part of the course covers Units 2 and 3 which are the ‘Physical Skill Instruction’ [Unit 2] and the ‘Delivering Physical Restraint Training Sessions’ [Unit 3] of the Award.

As part of this Unit you will be expected to demonstrate your ability to:
  • Instruct others in the least restrictive methods of physical intervention.
  • ​Demonstrate how to work effectively as part of a restraint team.
  • ​Demonstrate various low-level techniques to hold and support a person in a seated position.
  • ​Demonstrate appropriate de-escalation techniques from a standing and a seated position.
  • ​Explain the difference between least restrictive methods and more restrictive methods of control.
  • ​Demonstrate techniques to hold and support a person in a standing position.
  • ​Demonstrate how to de-escalate restraint from a restrictive to a least restrictive technique.
  • ​Demonstrate how to effectively move someone off the floor to a safer position.
  • ​Demonstrate the use of appropriate skills to release from a range of grabs and holds.
  • ​Demonstrate the use of appropriate skills to defend against punches, slaps and kicks.
  • ​Demonstrate the use of appropriate skills to defend against strangles, chokes and bites.
To help you with this, we provide you with a current up to date manual, checklist and good tutor to learner ratios so that we can provide you with adequate supervision and instruction.

What If I Fail?

This is a common question I get asked a lot and here is my answer. 

Because we take so much time in ensuring whether this course is the right fit for you or not and because we are 100% committed to you successfully passing this course, the risk of you failing is almost non-existent. 

My trainers and I are fully committed to working with you to ensure that we work in partnership with you. 

To this end we will provide you with any feedback to any pre-course work that you submit if required, to enable you to make the necessary changes to correct any wrong answers, until they are correct and we will continue to do that until it is correct and this can be done by phone, zoom or skype. 

On the course we ensure that our instructor to student ratio is adequate enough so that you work in small and intimate groups, so that we all get to know each other in order for all of us work towards one primary goal, which is to get you through the course successfully, so that you leave with the qualification/s you need. 

I'm Dyslexic - Does That Matter?

Absolutely not. We are an equal opportunities employer and we will make every reasonable adjustment to help you in any way we can and if you need any help and support we are 100% there for you, and you should remember this, some of the most successful people that ever lived were dyslexic, so dyslexia is not a barrier that will prevent you from passing this course.

Will I Get 'Beasted"?

This is another common question that we get asked and the answer is NO, absolutely not. 

Our courses are professionally run and aimed at individuals like you, who are seeking to become professionally competent in the field of Physical Intervention Training – Not ‘Unarmed Combat’.

The training is structured around a well tested and quality managed coaching model, aimed at providing mature and professional people like yourself, with a competent and professionally structured programme of achievement suitable to meet your needs.

We are aware that some of the more general type training providers still run military ‘boot-camp’ style warm up sessions, but we do not do that at all because there is simply no requirement for it.

Let's face it, you're not going to get the chance to 'warm up' in a real operational setting are you?

Our warm up is suitable for people of all ages and abilities and has been put together by a properly qualified and competent sports professional, who is also one of our team members.  

What Level Of Fitness Is Required and Am I Too Old?

The course does require you to be in reasonable physical condition, as you will be expected to undertake and teach physical skills.

However, we do not expect you to be a paragon of fitness but simply have the physical capability to undertake the activity and to be able to instruct the activity.

Therefore, if you do have any physical impairment which you feel may compromise your ability to undertake the course, please seek the advice of a medical professional before attending.

This is not to say you can’t undertake the training, as we have had people successfully complete the course who have prosthetic limbs and who are visually impaired. In short, we will do everything within our power to help you and we will most certainly not discriminate against you.

However, we do promote good Health and Safety at the core of our training provision, so it is always worth giving us a call or dropping us an email to discuss any issues that you wish to.

This means that if you have the potential ability, we will do our utmost to nurture and grow it into qualified potential.

Age is no barrier to learning. 

In fact we recently did a survey of everyone who trained with us over the past few years and we found that the average age of people choosing to train with us is approximately 42.

This is not to say that if you are any older or any younger you will not fit in because everyone is made welcome. 

In fact the age range of people training with us is from mid 20’s up to late 50’s and early 60’s. 

Our Course Is Easy, To Learn, Easy To Remember, Easy To Teach!

We have also had an independent review of our training undertaken by Southampton University on behalf of the Priory Group, one of our large healthcare clients and an extract from the survey is as follows:

“Since moving over to the NFPS system of work we have managed to achieve all of the above points – as well as providing training that keeps our clients and staff safe, a major benefit has seen indirect and direct cost savings.

In addition, we also reduced the number of techniques now taught to staff from 137 to only 7. This is important in that if something is easy to learn it can be easily taught, and, more importantly, easily recalled when required in situations of high emotional arousal.

Recently we conducted an independent comparative survey of the new NFPS system against the previous system used. The research project was undertaken by the University of Southampton and the aim of the report was to ensure that the NFPS system of work is acceptable clinically, ethically and legally.

The findings from the survey were as follows:

1. The training provided by NFPS Ltd is consistent with all of the legal requirements for training that the Priory is expected to comply with, such as: the Mental Health Act [2007], the NHS paper ‘Proposed Standards for Training in the Prevention and Therapeutic Management of Violence in Adult Mental Health Settings [2003] and the Mental Health Act Code of Practice [2008], NICE Guidance [2005], the Care Quality Commission [2009] guidance that highlights staff support, appropriate training, safer services for patients and investment in the workforce with regard to their wellbeing and safety.

2. With regard to the use of force with children and young people, the training provided by NFPS Ltd complies with all of the legislative requirements and is consistent with the following legislation: The Children Act 1989, The United Nations Conventions on the Rights of the Child, The Education and Inspections Act 2007 and the relevant guidance issued by various Government departments.

3. The training provided by NFPS Ltd is also compliant with all of the relevant statutory requirements in relation to the use of physical force including; Common and Criminal Law and the Human Rights Act 1998.

4. In addition, the training provided by NFPS Ltd meets all of the Health and Safety legislative requirements, including techniques which are developed and assessed for risk consistent with the Manual Handling Regulations 1992.

5. The seven techniques provided by the NFPS system of work provide sufficient restriction of patients to prevent aggressive or violent behaviour and were suitable across all clinical areas that the Priory, including Secure Services, Adults, Adolescents, Acute Services and Eating Disorders.

6. The staff feel supported and able to cope with the circumstances that may arise in all of the service areas because of the simplicity of the techniques and the legal and ethical underpinning the NFPS system of work provides.

7. All staff that took part in the survey confirmed that the training they receive is easier to work with than the previous system of work used.

The one thing that makes NFPS Ltd stand out is the ongoing support we get. If any advice is needed Mark Dawes is only a phone call or an e-mail away and we are able to call upon him at any time to assist us in any issue that we feel we require his input into – and most of this is done at no additional cost.

The training style used by NFPS is brilliant. Unlike some providers, it is not demonstrative or autocratic. It is totally inclusive. Learners on courses are made to feel very welcome and put at ease right from the start and I think this is because Mark knows his subject inside-out.

Janet Cowie, Group HRD Manager”
What this means is, that there is nothing difficult for you to learn and why should there be? 

The concern you may have is that you may have been taught a complex system in your past that involved multi-move components, that you had to remember along with lots of strange (made up) names for certain techniques? If you have, then you can put your concern to bed right now. 

We will not, for example, ask you to stand on your ‘platform whilst using a ‘single motor reflex under-hand grip’ with your left hand, while your 'right hand supports the rear quarter triceps muscle in a reverse underhand ploughing technique, while all the time making sure your backside points to the north at an approximate angle of 35 degrees!'

No having to learn each and every name of every technique or being able to show that you can break each technique down into different component parts (that is seriously old 1970's and 1980's teaching). 

Our method of instruction is easy because we understand that teaching and instruction isn't just about what we know – it’s about what we can help people do in the most simple yet efficient way and with little or no complexity.

This is our 'secret sauce' (so to speak) and it will literally blow your mind whilst improving your confidence and self-esteem! 

So, if you simply want to learn and teach a common sense approach to teaching physical restraint then you have definitely come to the right place.

The aim of the course is to qualify you as an instructor and we are able to help you achieve that much more easily by removing all the unnecessary baggage and only teaching you what is necessary. 

This is how we can train you as a BTEC Level 3 Restraint Instructor in 5 days, as the two videos below highlight.
This is an extract from a video interview with Trevel Henry who asked me how we managed to run a Restraint Trainer Course in 5 Days.
This is a video testimonial from Palkesh Darbar who had, before training with us, been trained on a three-week course.

I don't want you to waste your time and money and I genuinely want you to make a decision that's in the best interest of you and your family. So before you decide to train with us, or anyone else, let's have a discussion to find out what your real goals, wants and needs are.

You Can Also Take Additional BTEC Awards Whilst On The Course

Another major benefit in training with us is that you can take multiple Awards when you train with us, too.

This means you can come on one course and leave with all the qualifications you need to enable you to actually operate as a physical intervention instructor or even set up your own business.

These Awards are:

Once I know what your goals are and discover your 'why', I may be able to advise you of a better option than becoming a restraint trainer (read some of the testimonials below and you'll see what I mean!)

Here Are A Summary of The Benefits That You Will Receive When You Attend Our Next BTEC Level 3 Restraint & Breakaway Instructors Qualifying Course ... 

Legally Accurate and Defensible You can be safe in the knowledge that the training your will receive is possibly the most legally accurate and defensible training of it's kind in the UK today. In almost 30 years of training we have never lost a Court case or a challenge. This has protected our clients from civil and criminal prosecution and saved them literally tens, if not hundreds, of thousands of pounds in the process. This means that when you train and qualify with us you will benefit from a proven level or protection unsurpassed by any other training provider in this field. 
Safe Systems of Work Based on Full Assessments of Risk: The course is also Health and Safety compliant on a number of levels. Every aspect of the course has been developed in line with thorough assessments of risk to eliminate or reduce the risk of a learner being injured during training and you will be taught these processes and be given all of the risk assessments and supporting documentation to enable you to run your training safely when you leave the course. This safeguards you from someone being unnecessarily injured on your course and any subsequent claim for damages and legal action that they may bring against you that can cost you thousands of pounds.  

Medically Reviewed Techniques: Many organisations now require any training to be medically reviewed as fit for purpose with their respective vulnerable service users. This is a specific regulatory requirement if you’re looking to work with children and young people but is also best practice with any service user population. This has already been done for you by one of the most respected medical professionals in the UK today.

Techniques That Actually Work: The techniques and system you will learn actually work. They have been tested in numerous operational environments and the feedback that we regularly get is that they are simple and effective, whilst also being lawful when taught and applied within the legal context that you will learn. By teaching a very practical, yet effective system of restraint, you will be able to improve the confidence of your students and gain immediate integrity and credibility in the marketplace.

Easy To Learn - Easy To Teach: The real key benefit to our system of restraint & breakaway is that it is simple. All of the above has been woven into a simple and understandable training programme that is; simple to learn, simple to remember and simple to teach. We even provide you with all the resources you need to be able to run and facilitate a course in a safe, professional and competent manner. As a result, we get achievable results, where others only teach skills. We even teach you our simple teaching method that does away with the need to remember all of the names of every technique and the need to break each technqiue down and teach each component part. It will literally blow your mind! 

Take Additional Awards: Another major benefit in training with us is that you can take multiple Awards when you train with us, too. This means you can come on one course and leave with all the qualifications you need to enable you to actually operate as a physical intervention instructor or even set up your own business.

Be Treated Professionally & With Respect: When you train with us you will be treated as a professional, because you will become part of the training team from day 1 (because it is a trainers course). You will not be 'beasted' with any 'military style' warm-ups or fitness regime. None of us have a 'God complex'. In fact we are possibly the most self-deprecating bunch you'll ever meet! We love to have fun because we all love what we do and we want you to have fun and enjoy the experience too, because that will make it easier for you to pass the course (providing you have a sense of humour of course). 
Lots of Additional FREE Training Resources: As you have already seen, we provide you with lots of FREE resources that will enable you to leave the course and start delivering training immediately, without having to produce anything at all. This will save you lots of time and money in trying to figure out what to produce and how to produce it. This course is literally your business in a box!
Ongoing Post Course Help and Support: As a member of the 'NFPS Family' you will never be on your own. We will continue to support you and provide you with whatever help you need to help you deliver your training and grow your business. 
100% No Quibble - Money Back Guarantee: If you are in any way disappointed or dissatisfied we guarantee to give you 100% of your investment back - no questions asked. Therefore, you have everything to gain and nothing to lose. We take all the risk for you.

And Here's Some More Comments From Others Who We Have Trained or Helped

In addition to the videos that you have just seen, here are some comments from lots of other people, many of who themselves are experts in their chosen field, who have been kind enough to go public on their views and opinions about us.
"Dear Mr Mark Dawes and to whoever it might concern
I wanted to write to you about my experiences with your company the National Federation of Personal Safety (NFPS Ltd). A few years ago I decided I wanted to become a breakaway instructor because of my martial art back ground and my company who I do a lot of freelance tutoring for. They were being quoted a lot of money for training and thought I’d like to be able to offer that but charge half to 2/3rds of the cost so I found a course.
I decided I wanted to do some CPD, gain more knowledge and experience and become more qualified and I tried reaching out to companies with big names, but they wouldn’t deal with me because I was a free lancer and not part of a national company. They couldn’t see the bigger picture.
Then I stumbled across Mark and NFPS Ltd. Mark rang me after my enquiry and talked to me about the options to ensure that the course’s I wanted to do would be appreciate and what I needed rather than selling me a more expensive course that I wouldn’t use the skills I’d learn and talked to me about how I could use it in my martial arts as well as deliver to companies. 

I initially signed up for the self-defence instructor, conflict management and Carnegie ABC. I haven’t completed these courses due to the face-to-face aspects due to Covid-19, but marks online platform for background learnings been great and I have become so much more knowledgeable.
I love Marks coaching group learning about how to push on will selling my business, and then mark always seems to find a new blog post, webinar or podcast on topics that further increase my knowledge and understanding, making me become more of an expert in the field. 

Since then I have gone on to complete further courses in breakaway, risk assessments, reasonable force, marketing, videos that sell and the law and guidance on the use of handcuffs and mechanical restraints. Through this I can now deliver training with further knowledge and confidence in my teaching delivery adding further credibility to my courses.
I also love the fact the courses fit in on the national education frameworks rather than being a company produced certificate that doesn’t mean much to anyone other than those in the company or those who complete the course. 

I’m looking forward later this year when I have completed some instructor courses being able to deliver Btec’s through the NFPS adding further credibility to my courses and delivery.
Mark I also appreciate that I can drop you and email or pick up the phone and your will have to have a chat and advise me or others, I have referred a few friends to some of your courses so they can help me with delivery and that’s been because I love the training and what I’m getting from the courses and the investment in my own development I know I will make back and much more in a few months and I can ensure I deliver training more suited to individuals and companies.
Thank you so much
Kind regards
Steve Lilley owner of Sculpting Fitness and South West Kickboxing Academy"

This Is Why So Many People Choose Us As Their Preferred Training Provider!

But There Is A Downside! We Only Run Two BTEC Level 3 Restraint Trainer Award Courses A Year!

The only downside is that we only run this Physical Intervention Trainer Course twice a year (in March and in September), simply because we are more concerned with quality and not quantity.

This means that places are always in great demand, and because it is a very popular course, places do fill up very quickly.
