The BTEC Level 2 Award in Disengagement and Physical Intervention was both informative and fun to do. I found the legislation section really useful, which in turn has given me the confidence to make those all important decisions around using force. The trainers were confident and very experienced and the course paperwork was easy to follow and complete.
