Our evac chair/evacuation chair training courses are designed to provide candidates with both the competence and confidence in the use of an emergency evacuation chair and to assist the mobility impaired in evacuating a building in an emergency.

We can provide training at a time and place to suit you and our instructors are able to provide training across a range of chair manufacturers including manual and powered chairs.

All of our evac chair/evacuation chair training sessions include a practical period enabling delegates and potential evacuees, if required, to experience using the chair and gain the confidence and competence required to effectively operate the chair in the event of an emergency.


Approximately 3 hours, dependant upon individual practical performance.


To make delegates aware of:

– The actions required to assist the mobility impaired in the event of an emergency evacuation procedure
– The operation of an evac/evacuation chair
– Practical issues of evacuating the mobility impaired


On completion of training, all participants will be able to competently use an evac chair or evacuation chair to assist in the evacuation of the mobility impaired from refuges if required and gain confidence in the chair and their ability to operate it.

All candidates will receive a certificate of training detailing their ability to use the specified model of evac chair / evacuation chair and should undergo refresher training regularly to maintain an effective capability.
