ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

No formal qualifications or experience are necessary, but it would be beneficial if delegates had a basic understanding of work at height issues

Note: Since the safe use of mobile access towers requires that delegates consult safety notices and  thoroughly understand the manufacturers’s instruction manual, literacy and language comprehension are important requirements for an tower users. Similarly, since the assembly and use of mobile access towers can be physically demanding, users should be physically fit and in good health and should, generally, not have problems with eyesight or hearing, heart disease, high blood pressure, epilepsy, fear of heights / vertigo, giddiness / difficulty with balance, impaired limb function, alcohol or drug dependence or psychiatric illness. If delegates have any problems with literacy or language comprehension, or have any doubts about their fitness to use mobile access towers, they must bring them to the attention of their employer. This need not preclude them from using mobile access towers, provided their employer conducts an assessment and is able to put into place adequate measures, to take account of any difficulties they may have.

ENTRY REQUIREMENTS

ASSESSMENT

Practical and theory assessments will take place on the day. Successful candidates will be issued with a Photo Card and Certificate after the course.
