The lift portal for OTs and Healthcare Professionals

Stairlift Academy Banner Computer

Stairlift Academy is the all-encompassing lift platform for OTs and healthcare professionals. Our aim was to create a learning platform that combines both seminars and resources that would help you to recommend the best lifting solution for your client

On the Stairlift Academy portal you can find our Stairlift Assessment Seminar, a free CPD course for healthcare professionals. This seminar covers everything you need to know about stairlifts installations. From how to measure your client to assessing their home and mobility in order to recommend the safest lifting option. On our portal you can also find case studies and blogs where we discuss particularly unique instances and explain the challenges we overcame in order to fit a lift in someone’s home.

Stairlift Academy is brought to you by the directors of 1st Choice Stairlifts, who have over 60 years of combined experience in the industry. In 2004 they were invited to a training day to educate an OTs team about stairlifts. Ever since, their was high demand for the presentation, so they expanded it into a seminar. By refreshing the content and updating the information as the stairlift industry evolved, they seminar became so popular that they often had waiting lists of those wanting to attend! Due to the pandemic, online training becoming more and more popular. Because of this, our directors decided to give the educational part of the company a new and fresh identity! Stairlift Academy is available at your fingertips with instant access.
