This course is suitable for anyone in an organisation who assembles, alters, dismantles, moves, inspects and most importantly uses alloy or fibreglass mobile access towers, low level access units or podiums in the workplace. This not only includes construction sites but all workplaces, such as schools, offices and factories both internally and externally. There are no prerequisites required for this course although a working knowledge of mobile access towers and low level access units 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 for Users & Low-Level Access 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 safely, in line with current approved methods and manufacturer’s instructions.
Once you’ve completed the course, you become eligible for more advanced PASMA courses which cover different tower configurations, such as:
