Hi there

Does anyone know any companies that provide training for users of mobile tower scaffolds in the Derby area.

It is only for one or two people in a company that use mobile tower scaffolds to erect signs.

Thanks

Tracey Stubbs

Sorry folks rather late on this response, but you can contact IPAF directly and get a list of approved training providers in your area. IPAF is a standard not a legal requirement. But if you want the job doing well and benefit from the training being 'underwritten' then using a national accreditation scheme is a really go idea.

The law says that operators must be competent. This does not mean that they MUST go on an accredited course, but it certainly stops a lot of arguments if they do.

Hi All,

Sorry Tracey, I also meant to mention PASMA - the Prefabricated Access Suppliers and Manufacturers' Association; who have establish a range of training to ensure competency.

Their websiter also provides links to suitable training providers registered with PASMA:
PASMA Training - http://www.pasma.co.uk/public/pasma-training.jsp

Best Regards,

Phil
