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.
Delegates can also attend this course in order to progress onto any of the advanced modules.
Successful delegates will gain an understanding of current relevant legislation and be able to dismantle, erect, inspect and most importantly use mobile access towers and low level access units safely, in line with current approved methods and manufacturer’s instructions.
At the end of the theory session, delegates will take a short multiple choice test. If delegates successfully pass the test, they will then move onto the practical assessment, where they will have to build a mobile access tower using both the 3T (Through the Trap) and AGR (Advanced Guardrail) methods.
Successful delegates will receive a certificate and Photo ID card which will be valid for a period of 5 years from the date of the course.
