About Us

About Us

We're an association of different training providers using the same model of training. The idea is to bridge the gap created by the existence of multiple models of PMVA training in the UK through collaboration and joined-up working involving experience professionals, trainers, violence reduction specialists, and globally recognised researchers in physical activities and risk assessment.

The organisation is made up of a group of four independent companies that offer training and/or consulting services within the health care, social care, and education sectors. The organisations practice under one umbrella for the purposes of using the same training model delivered under uniform standards and expectations. It will also provide a governance structure and processes for all trainers who are certified to use the PMVA Associates training model. The model aims not just to be a training provider but a specialist service provider. We want our service to be geared towards changing mindsets, particularly about the role of restraint in any violence reduction approach.

The companies involved in PMVA Associates are: 

● Ai Training and Consulting (www.aitrainingandconsulting.co.uk) 
● IRMA Training (www.irmatraining.co.uk)
● Safe Hands Training Solutions (www.safehandstraining.uk)
● 1st Med Health Solutions (www.1stmedhealthsolutions.co.uk)
