This course is aimed at personnel who are or will be responsible for assembling, dismantling, moving, inspecting and using mobile access towers on stairways, escalators and stepped levels. 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 also 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.
