Testimonial from a World Leading Expert on the Use of Force and Personal Safety Training & Consultancy

Lawrence is one of life’s good guys. He is someone I would trust explicitly as he believes in doing what is right because it is the right thing to do. Lawrence has invested in your training and development through his approach to his own investment in what he knows which has resulted in him traveling the world to source and train with some of the world’s best in their chosen fields. His journey of endeavor and quest for excellence will undoubtedly help you start on your journey, as he has already walked the path that you are now choosing to follow. As one great person once said: “We should not judge people by their peak of excellence; but by the distance they have traveled from the point where they started.” 

If you are looking for a new start then it is always best to follow in the footsteps of a wise and knowledgeable traveller. That is what we do when we choose our holidays, why not do the same when we make other life choices. My recommendation is to let Lawrence be your guide.

  答 :

問題一:  專業導師為什麼需要持續進修及認證 (Instructor Refresher Course & Accreditation)

  • 所有持有英國 NFPS「Restraint & Breakaway Instructor Accreditation」的導師認證有效期為一年,發證機構為確保導師符合最新安全指引、典範實務 「BEST PRACTICE 」及專業水平,要求所有導師必須每年參與持續進修 (refresher course)  及 通過評核 (Assessment),經評核合格後再獲年度認可證書(Accreditation)。
  • 時實上,隨著研究結果累積,很多以前認為「有效」的介入手法可能已經證明為「無效」,甚至「危險」。在知識爆炸年代,很多新知識和研究都會出現,「畢業」的導師必須透過持續進修,吸收新知識,才能與時並進。不進則退,一個如此顯淺的道理,不用多說,作為一位負責任及專業的導師,持續進修肯定是不能迴避的,理由很簡單,導師怎樣確保其學員擁有最新的知識及有效的介入手法?如果一個導師的知識是「經年不變」,對培訓的發展肯定是倒退,對學生的學習肯定是災難性的!

問題二:  為何要選擇持有年度認證資格導師執教?

  • 根據暴力行為控制及脫身法培訓的典範實務 「BEST PRACTICE 」,英國 NFPS 標準為每年必須重修及通過評核,而美國 The Mandt System ® 標準為每兩年必須重修及通過評核。
  • 最新研究報告,部份舊有的脫身法及控制法技巧並未能符合英國及美國的安全標準,容易做成職員、服務使用者受傷或死亡,已不建議醫護人員使用,個別技巧亦在英國及美國嚴禁使用。
  • 為確保所學的技巧為最新及符合相關安全指引,我們建議機構 / 學員使用持有年度認證的導師。事實上,我們學會已更新及停止教授 2008-2012 年的大部份脫身法技巧及控制法,以符合英國和美國相關指引及安全指數。

問題三:  請問如何查證導師符合年度認可資格?

  • 持有年度英國 NFPS 認可培訓機構名稱 (Licensed Centre)已刊載在英國 NFPS 網頁: NFPS Licensed Centres List 歡迎按此查看
  • 參與機構亦可向服務提供者要求查看導師是否持有年度認可證書 (Accreditation Certificate / Refresher Certificate),確保質素。
  • 本學會全部導師通過年度英國 NFPS 評核,並領有認可證書,歡迎各機構查詢。
