Occupational Therapy CPD Course

Continuing Professional Developement Course

1st Choice Stairlifts Free Occupational Therapy CPD Course

Our Stairlift Academy is the ultimate hub for occupational therapy professionals and healthcare workers. Our goal is to provide a comprehensive learning experience that equips you with the knowledge to effectively recommend the best lifting solutions for your clients.

On the Stairlift Academy platform, you'll discover our Stairlift Assessment Seminar, an invaluable CPD training course tailored for occupational therapists and healthcare professionals. This seminar explores the details of stairlift installations, covering essential topics such as client measurement techniques, home assessments, and mobility evaluations to ensure the safest lifting solutions are recommended. Additionally, our portal hosts a wealth of case studies and insightful blogs where we delve into unique scenarios and detail the challenges overcome in fitting lifts into clients' homes.

Our Stairlift Academy is the brainchild of our experienced professionals behind 1st Choice Stairlifts, boasting over 60 years of collective industry experience. Originating from a humble training day invitation in 2004 aimed at educating occupational therapists about stairlifts, the overwhelming demand led to the expansion of the session into a full-fledged seminar. Continuously refreshed and updated to reflect industry advancements, the seminar quickly gained popularity, often with waiting lists for attendance. With the shift towards online learning accelerated by the pandemic, our directors recognised the opportunity to adapt our educational arm of the company. Therefore, the Stairlift Academy was born, offering instant access to advanced CPD courses and resources at your fingertips.
