Maybo sets the benchmark for violence reduction and conflict management training within the transport industry. Our comprehensive training equips ferry staff with the knowledge and skills so that they can manage difficult and challenging interactions, whilst providing excellent customer service to passengers, including potentially vulnerable and sometimes challenging individuals.
People working within the transport industry are often faced with challenging situations due to the nature of their job and the unpredictability of human behaviour, particularly when passengers are frustrated due to delays or under the influence of alcohol.
If poorly managed, minor incidents can quickly escalate into aggressive and challenging situations, which can represent a safety risk to staff, fellow passengers and the reputation of your organisation.
Maybo believes that the majority of incidents can be avoided or defused with great customer service and positive communication skills.
We also provide physical intervention and conflict incident response training for staff whose role carries heightened safety risks and responsibilities, such as lone workers and those with duties that may require them to physically guide, escort or restrain a person.

Maybo's eLearning programmes utilise the latest learning technologies, realistic scenarios and interactive exercises to offer an engaging self-study learning experience.
eLearning can play a valuable role within a blended learning strategy, underpinning the knowledge and reducing staff abstraction time, or in some instances as a complete solution. It also works well for induction and refresher training.
eLearning is also known as self-directed learning. It often precedes Classroom or Virtual Classroom training to provide a foundation of knowledge in advance - this is known as a blended approach.
Maybo designs and delivers training to meet your requirements and can deliver direct to your staff wherever you need it. We take time to understand your training needs and the unique challenges and scenarios your colleagues face, to ensure our Classroom courses are highly relevant. Learners receive superb resources and certificates with a range of accreditation and qualification options.
Classroom training can be combined with eLearning to form a blended learning strategy, underpinning the knowledge and reducing staff abstraction time.
Classroom training is delivered by a trainer at an agreed venue. It is also sometimes called face-to-face or in-person training.
Maybo designs and delivers Virtual Classroom training to meet your requirements.
Virtual Classroom training enables staff to benefit from engaging team training with high-levels of participation delivered remotely by a skilled facilitator over video conferencing software including Zoom and MS Teams.
Virtual Classroom training can also be combined powerfully with eLearning to form a blended learning strategy, with eLearning underpinning the knowledge and reducing staff abstraction time.
Virtual Classroom training is live, participatory training delivered remotely by a trainer with video conferencing software.

Please make it known that the whole team had nothing but praise for the trainer and that even the “old hands” found it very stimulating as he raised issues in a very understandable way. May I comment that as a general rule, I have never known of any candidates coming away without having gained a lot from these refresher courses.
Training was contemporaneous and provided contextually. Impressed with the overall content.
Maybo has worked closely with BSUH to develop and enhance the violence reduction training we deliver to frontline staff. The passion, knowledge, commitment and support to the Trust and more generally in developing effective evidence-based violence reduction programmes for healthcare settings, mark them out as an organisation the Trust is pleased to continue to work with.
The training package was facilitated clearly, concisely and in an easy to understand way. The trainer was engaging and knowledgeable of the course content and catered for the diverse group of learners really well. The trainer kept us on track and encouraged everyone to engage and bring their own experiences. We all had a fabulous week.
Maybo has great content relevant to hospital and health services. Experienced trainers were able to take-away some excellent strategies that can be delivered in such a way that feels comfortable and natural. The Maybo trainer was patient and informative and this was appreciated. Quality course/quality trainer.
Excellent training session. Kept us all interested for the whole day. Would highly recommend.
May I say a big thank you for the Maybo violence and aggression course for the ITU nurses. I attended the course today and it was excellent. I think the staff would all agree that the knowledge and skills taught will be hugely beneficial, but in addition, it was a great team-building exercise too. I feel it is imperative that all our ITU nurses attend this course.
The instructor was highly informative and approachable at all times. They were also clear and concise and conducted the lesson at a safe standard at all times.
Maybo's licensed programme gives us the control and flexibility we need to train our staff effectively.
The level of service and attentiveness to client needs is unparalleled.
Very professional instructors with good background knowledge of the Ambulance Service. Always willing to suggest solutions to possible problems.
We have seen a reduction in the number of reported physical assaults of 11% trust-wide so far and up to a 60% reduction in targeted wards.
The training, certification and resources provided by Maybo are of the highest quality and will help ensure ISS, its employees and customers receive the best guidance and protection available.
The online training has worked well. We’ve been able to reduce abstraction time for staff for direct training from two days to one.
Springboard would like to thank the Maybo team for delivering training to us. It was very useful, the feedback was very positive, and the trainer was excellent.
Very happy with Maybo content and back-up services. I like how the content is aimed at the majority of staff and not just high end situations. The session content and layout of the presentations are a big improvement on previous training packages.
It has been a pleasure working with Maybo to coordinate St Mungo’s conflict management learning programme. This solution is ideal for staff and the pre and post support from Maybo is excellent.
They have extensive demonstrated
experience in the delivery of conflict resolution and
assault avoidance training in the health care sector both in
Australia, and around the world. It has a layered and blended approach. They provide a
comprehensive training program to meet the needs of staff
in different service areas, all are based on human rights.
The course alerted managers to how sensitive management of people after a violent incident can reduce trauma symptoms and aid recovery.
The training design was based on a comprehensive Training Needs Analysis informed by a bespoke staff survey and review of incidents. It has been an incredibly thorough and risk/evidence-based approach. Evaluation of this training by security and clinical staff has been very positive.
The Maybo Train the Trainer programme has enabled us to deliver Maybo’s excellent training to staff with our own trainers who have the knowledge and experience of the issues faced by the organisation. Staff in high-risk roles were given the confidence to deal safely with violent incidents.
Having provided training for us for many years, we have found Maybo to be very professional. Maybo training gives you peace of mind that your staff will be safer.
Please pass on my thanks to both trainers. The training was exactly what we required for our Bridge Attendants and they all learnt a lot from it.
