The PASMA Towers with Cantilevers Course delivers a minimum of 7 hours of classroom and practical instruction to providing suitable competence to those operatives working on Mobile Access Towers with standard Cantilever frames fitted.
This nationally recognised course is designed to instruct up to a maximum of 8 candidates, and provide training on mobile access towers manufactured in aluminium alloy, approved to BS EN 1004: 2004 and which carry a current British Standard or other equivalent marks of approval. This course has recently been introduced after a complete revision and update.
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 with cantilever frames fitted. 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.
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.
Successful delegates will gain an understanding of current relevant legislation, guidance and best practice effecting working at height. The course agenda includes:
Introduction to Mobile Access Towers with Cantilevers
Legal overview – Health & Safety / Work at Height Regulations 2005
British & European standards
Guidance & information on tower components, inspection & maintenance
Your responsibilities when using mobile access towers
Multiple choice assessment paper
