PASMA’s Access Tower Specialist training course will equip you with the knowledge you need to work safely with non-standard towers. After a day of theory online, spend a pretty full-on and physically demanding week at a training facility and then head back to work – now a more valuable teammate than ever! You’ll be capable of leading a bespoke tower scaffold build from start to finish:
You’ll also have an in-depth understanding of the most relevant product standards and work at height legislation/regulations, as well as technical knowledge of design constraints, loading criteria, enabling components, component lifting techniques, tying in, design drawings, assembly use and dismantling plans, hazard identification and safe assembly techniques.
You’ll be building towers that can go tall and wide, around, over and under obstacles, give access to multiple levels or stairwells, provide large (and mobile) deck areas, squeeze into tight spaces and be altered as requirements evolve.
Doing all of this with lightweight, prefabricated aluminium components is a specialist skill that is not taught anywhere else.
On successfully completing all theory and practical segments of the course, you’ll receive a new Access Tower Specialist PASMA PhotoCard.
This card lets people know that you’re competent to erect, dismantle and inspect all types of towers, including bespoke structures designed to suit the needs of a site.
You can demonstrate that you’ve been formally trained on working with non-standard towers safely.
Your card will include a holographic CSCS logo (Construction Skills Certification Scheme), providing a familiar and reliable way for construction clients, employers and contractors to verify your qualifications and training.
This partnership between CSCS and PASMA signifies industry-wide recognition of the Access Tower Specialist vocation and agreement the PASMA Access Tower Specialist course is the required standard of qualification and skill for anyone erecting, dismantling or inspecting complex access towers.
