PASMA Towers on Stairs Course

Course Overview


Our PASMA Towers on Stairs Course delivers a minimum of 7 hours of instruction and is designed to instruct up to a maximum of 8 delegates, providing training on mobile access towers manufactured in aluminium alloy or GRP fibreglass, approved to BS EN 1004: 2004 which carry a current British Standard or other equivalent mark of approval.

This course consists of a training room lecture, DVD presentation, written assessment, practical training and assessment.

Who should attend


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 or PASMA Combined Tower & Low Level Access Course prior to booking this course. A working knowledge of mobile access towers 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.



This course is aimed at personnel who are or will be responsible for assembling, dismantling, moving, inspecting and using mobile access towers on stairway, or escalators. There is a prerequisite that all attending this course must have successfully attended and hold a current PASMA Tower for Users course certification.

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 on a stairwell.

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.
