Course Overview

The PASMA Towers with Cantilevers Course provides delegates with knowledge and skills required to utilise standard Cantilever frames on Mobile Access Towers, delivering a minimum of 6 hours of instruction and is designed to instruct up to a maximum of 8 delegates.

Delegates are required to have a valid and in-date PASMA Tower for Users qualification in order to attend this course.

This nationally recognised course provides training on mobile access towers manufactured in aluminium alloy, approved to BS EN1004-1:2020 & BS 1139-6 and which carry a current British Standard or other equivalent marks of approval.

This course consists of a training room lecture, DVD presentation, written assessment, practical training and assessment.

This course is aimed at personnel who are or will be responsible for assembling, dismantling, moving, inspecting and using mobile access towers with cantilever frames fitted. Delegates are required to have successfully passed the PASMA Tower for Users Course prior to booking this course. A working knowledge of mobile access towers is an advantage.

Since the safe use of mobile access towers requires that delegates consult safety notices and read and thoroughly understand the manufacturer’s instruction manual, English literacy and language comprehension are important requirements for any tower user.

Please note that delegates will be expected to work at height whilst building a mobile access tower, so please ensure delegates are in good health and do not have a fear of heights that may preclude them from taking part in the practical assessment.

Successful delegates will receive a PASMA Towers with Cantilevers e-certificate and physical photo ID card, valid for a period of 5 years from the date of the course. All successful delegates can also access their e-certification through the free PASMA TowerSure smartphone app, available on iOS and Android.

They will gain an understanding of current relevant legislation and be able to dismantle, assemble, inspect and most importantly use mobile access towers with cantilever frames safely, in line with current approved methods and manufacturer’s instructions.
