Towers for Users

Combined

Low-Level Access

& Towers for Users

Two qualifications in one day

Duration: 1 day
Practical: Yes
Standards: EN 1004, BS 8620
If you work with mobile access towers and low level access equipment, you can do both courses at the same time. Ask your training centre for the PASMA Combined Low-Level Access and Towers for Users course, which gives you both qualifications in one day.
The combined course covers all the content from Towers for Users as well as everything from Low-Level Access. Separately, these courses would take 1.5 days. But when you do them at the same time, our expert instructors can streamline the content into one learning-packed day.

Delegates begin second level install

PASMA Combined Low-Level Access and Towers for Users will equip you with the specialist knowledge you need to work safely with mobile access towers and low-level access equipment such as podiums. Spend one day at an approved PASMA training centre with an expert instructor and go back to work knowing:

  • How to safely assemble, dismantle, alter and move this equipment
  • How to safely use this equipment
  • How to inspect this equipment
  • How to identify hazards relating to their use
  • What legislation, regulations and guidance are applicable to these towers

If you’re new to towers or tower training, Towers for Users is the ideal starter course. It’s our flagship course, taken by more than 70,000 delegates each year. If you’ll also be using low-level access equipment, it makes sense to do the combined course. It’s the most efficient way to gain both qualifications.
