An approved and essential qualification for people who want to work at heights using Mobile Access Towers, is taking bookings.

This one day course offers vital safety and practical workshops giving all attendees the opportunity to experience erecting, dismantling, storing and maintenance of tower scaffolding.

Jem Stevens, Tutor, Cornwall College Camborne said anyone who works at heights and uses this type of tower must have a recognised qualification to prove they are competent and able to safely handle such equipment.

“This highly practical course is designed to give all attendees the necessary skills and knowledge to work safely covering areas like assembly, stability, repositioning and its regulations, as well as delivering key theory subjects including site inspections and procedures,” he added.

Held at the Camborne campus, the course gives people easy access to the workshop, particularly those in employment where time is critical.

Following the PASMA (Prefabricated Access Suppliers and Manufacturers Association) training schedule, successful completion of the two-part workshop, gives users a recognised ‘card’ that can be used for employment purposes. As an organisation, PASMA has issued over 70,000 cards for its members.

“The association is committed to delivering world-class support to all corners of the industry,” said Peter Bennett, PASMA’s Managing Director.

“Providing practical skills and knowledge are central to meeting this objective.”

Jem added that the courses are extremely popular.

“In fact the last course sold out in a matter of days,” he continued.

“Our next course is in May and at just £85 per delegate, which includes borrowing various kit including hard hat and hi-vis jacket, is a cost effective workshop for people who work in trades using Mobile Access Towers and who want to learn best practice.

“Whether you work in construction or maintenance are a contractor or end-user, this industry standard training will give you the tools to make you proficient, competent and above all safe.”
