Fitness to Participate

Terms and Conditions of attendance and participation to the Physical Intervention part of the Door Supervisor course:

Fitness to Participate: The training course involves learning and practicing physical intervention skills with the Tutor(s) and other delegates in a group. It also entails standing for long periods and can be physically demanding.

It is essential that you are in suitable physical and emotional health to participate. If you are in any doubt, please seek appropriate medical advice from your GP prior to attending. If you have an existing medical condition or are currently taking prescribed medication, please seek appropriate medical advice. Do not put yourself or others at risk. On arrival for training, you will be required to bring the Tutor’s attention to any health related condition that could put yourself or others at increased risk during the training and also complete a ‘Declaration of Fitness’. Be aware that Tutors are not medically qualified and the onus on them will be to not take risks; this may result in you not being able to commence training.

Personal hygiene: During training, you will be involved in physical interactions with other delegates. As a respect to them, you need to maintain a high standard of personal hygiene. You may wish to bring a small hand towel, soap and deodorant to freshen up during the course and even a change of top.

Jewellery: For safety reasons, all jewellery must be removed prior to commencement of physical skills practice. Any items of jewellery which cannot be removed must be suitably taped over to reduce the risk of injury to the Candidate and/or other Candidate(s).

Expected behaviour & responsibilities (Duty of care): There is always a possibility of injury when physical intervention techniques are practiced. However, if Candidates behave responsibly and comply with the Tutor’s instructions, the risks are minimal. Candidates that behave irresponsibly may be removed from the course immediately.

Your permission – photos & video: During the course, photographs and video recording may take place. There is no obligation to consent to this. If you don’t want to be photographed or filmed please inform the Tutor, who will make appropriate arrangements. Unless you make it clear to the Tutor beforehand, SfJ will assume your permission is granted to include images taken on our (public) Facebook web site and other similar publicity media.

Your email/contact number: If the Tutor requests your email or contact number for the Attendance Register, this will be for quality assurance purposes only. That is, so that after a course we can contact a sample of delegates to confirm their satisfaction with the training. SfJ will not use your details for any other purpose and as soon as the QA process has been conducted the data will be permanently deleted. There is no obligation on you to provide your email or contact telephone number.
