PBMpro Training

Positive Behaviour Management Pro (PBMpro) has been certified by BILD ACT and complies with the Restraint Reduction Network (RRN) Training Standards. The care staff course and trainer course are also CPD-certified.


The Benefits: PBMpro is more than a physical intervention package. Its introduction and implementation, particularly when used to dovetail with Positive Behaviour Support, will help transform your organisation’s approach towards reducing restrictive practices.

PBMpro is an ethical, research-based training programme focused on cultural change and imbued with a commitment to respect for vulnerable people being supported (see Ethical Approaches to Physical Interventions). It is well established, respected and has evolved in line with developments in the sector. It began as, and remains, a pioneering method which rejects the use of punishment and the use of pain-based physical intervention techniques.

PBMpro has been a powerful influence in shaping staff attitudes and improving the quality of life for vulnerable people in services who are at risk of restrictive practice (see Reducing the Use of Restrictive Practices). We take pride in training staff to the highest possible standards without cutting corners. Our training is top-quality, comprehensive and won’t let you down.

PBMpro care staff courses are delivered at a local venue of your choice; we’ll come you – at no additional cost. Group sizes are up to 8, 12 or 18 staff. The full care staff course will be either 2.5 or 3 days depending on the behaviours being experienced. The annual refresher is one day. If you are new to our training, we would be happy to discuss an introductory discount so you can experience the difference for yourself.

Other options include:

PBMpro care staff foundation course: This one-day course is suitable for staff working in very low risk services. It provides introductory information on proactive approaches in the prevention and management of a limited number of behavioural scenarios requiring non-restrictive self-defence techniques. This will help you avoid over-training staff.

PBMpro train-the-trainer course
Organisations can opt to become an affiliate and train their own in-house trainers through our train-the-trainer course. Opportunities to train trainers each year are limited, and early application is advised. We run trainer courses throughout the UK according to demand.
