Behind The Scenes With NFPS Ltd

Welcome to the NFPS Ltd website.

If you are interested in becoming a properly qualified level 3 physical intervention, conflict management, handcuff and/or self-defence trainer, then you’ve arrived at the right place.

We have been training physical intervention, conflict management, handcuff and self-defence trainers for almost thirty years now. That means we will always be here for you when you need us.

We are considered by many to be possibly the UK’s best approved and accredited training provider of trainer training courses. So you can expect great customer service and ongoing support from us for as long as you need it.

During our career we have trained trainers in the healthcare, care, education and security industry sectors. This means we can certainly help you no matter what sector you are in or wish to be in.

We’ve also had the privilege of working with some of the UK’s most respected trainers too. So you can be safe in the knowledge that you will get the best training available.

We were the first training provider to create BTEC Level 3 qualifications in the field of physical intervention and handcuffing. So you can tap into a wealth of experience to help you build and grow your business.

Our training is also legally compliant with all of the UK’s common and statute law, including the Human Rights Act and children’s legislation. This means that you will be delivering legally defensible training.

It is also health and safety compliant and underpinned by competent and thorough assessments of risk.

That helps us manage the risks associated with the training and operational use of physical force. Such as the risk of a restraint related death due to positional asphyxia and the risk of injury to the person being restrained as well as staff doing the restraint.

This means that you are less likely to get in trouble if you follow our simple and proven step by step methods.

We also offer online training too in areas such as the law and risks associated with physical intervention, handcuffing and risk assessment training, to name a few.

Our mission is to help you become the best trainer you can be by increasing your competence and reducing your liability.

To this end we provide unparalleled support for you once you have trained and qualified with us so you are never alone.

This support even includes marketing and mentoring support and coaching, all at no additional cost to you at all. This will save you tens of thousands of pounds.

This is why so many people choose to train with us and not just here in the UK. We have had people fly in from all over the world to attend our courses. That’s how much people value what we offer.

We even guarantee our training with a no-quibble 100% money back guarantee. So you have everything to gain and nothing to lose.

We have built our business on solid values too, such as trust, loyalty, integrity, honesty and honour. That means we put you first in everything we do.

So if you’d like to train with possibly the longest established and most dependable training provider in the UK, then you’ve come to the right place.

And if I can be of any service to you always feel free to reach out to me by filling in the form on our Contact Us page.
