TCI Physical Training Participation Guidelines

NOTE: Before signing this application, please review the following guidelines for participating in physical activity.

Guidelines For Safe Participation In Physical Restraint Training

We want to reduce the risk of injury for participants during our training as well as set reasonable guidelines for trainers in their own agencies in order to reduce the risk of injury for staff members and children. We ask that you consider the following risk factors and participate in the TCI training according to your own level of physical fitness. You will need to calculate your Body Mass Index (BMI) in order to complete this assessment. You can use the following web site to estimate your BMI:

No physical restraint training

If you have one of the following conditions, you should not participate in any physical activity that requires twisting and turning, manoeuvring to the floor, or extreme exertion. You may participate in protective interventions if you and your physician determine that you are not putting yourself or others at undue risk. We reserve the right to request medical verification of your ability to participate in the category of physical activity you self-declare on the application.

  • Pregnancy*
  • Back or knee problems
  • Cardiopulmonary conditions
  • Recent surgery
  • Osteoarthritis
  • Osteoporosis
  • BMI over 35** 

*Please note that if you are pregnant, you will not be allowed to participate in any of the physical activities.

**If your BMI is over 35 and you wish to participate in the full physical restraint training, the following conditions should be met:

  • You adhere to a regular fitness/workout routine
  • Your blood pressure is within normal range (with or without medication) 

I attest that I am physically capable of sustained, intense exertion and have no physical disability or condition (e.g., recent surgery, back or knee problems, obesity, heart condition) that would prevent me from participating in the physical restraint techniques and exercises (such as dropping repeatedly to knees, supporting another adult’s weight, twisting and turning manoeuvres, intense physical exertion, etc.) required to complete the course entitled Train the Trainer in Therapeutic Crisis Intervention and all update programs. I understand that these activities are strenuous.

I acknowledge and assume the risks associated with strenuous physical activities and any accident that may occur during my participation in such activities. I also understand that Cornell University and the Residential Child Care Project has no responsibility to make an independent assessment of my physical capability to participate in the Train the Trainer in Therapeutic Crisis Intervention course and all update courses. If I have any questions or reservations about my physical capability to participate, I attest that I have consulted my own physician and initialled the category of activity below that best applies to my ability.

Please choose which physical interventions your organization uses and you are requesting to participate in. Please remember that you should only be requesting certification in skills that you previously held a certification to train, and that your agency policies support.

NOTE: regardless of the physical activities you choose, all prevention, de-escalation, safety, and recovery material will be covered in the training.
