A PASMA training photo-card and certificate of competence provides evidence that the user has passed written and practical examinations in the safe use of mobile access towers. PASMA training is recognised as one of the premier qualifications in the construction industry.
The use of Mobile Scaffold Towers is still a reliable and accessible way of reaching hard to access workplaces. By checking components for possible damage prior to and following the manufacturer’s instruction manual during assembly, scaffold towers can be very safe and secure. In addition, a trained operative is far less likely to suffer a serious injury as a result of an accident.
Boss Training is an authorised member of PASMA and is at the forefront of developing and delivering safe work at height training solutions. The standard PASMA training course can be delivered as a stand alone course or combined with the low-level course.
We employ highly qualified and experienced instructors using the best quality training methods and materials. This ensures that when you book a course with Boss Training, we guarantee to provide you with the best service that the industry has to offer.
Approved by the HSE, PASMA training courses are recognised as the premier qualification for the scaffold tower industry.
PASMA Training Courses from Boss are widely available across the country, often at short notice. The standard course is the original training programme for the safe use and inspection of Aluminium and Fibreglass Prefabricated Mobile Access Towers. The photo id card is approved by the UK Contractors Group and is accepted on sites throughout the UK. After 5 years, the course must be taken again to take account of user experience and changes in legislation. We offer a free training management service to all our clients which helps greatly in planning and preventing potential downtime. For more information about this speak to Dean Parker on 01422 358184. Following the course, successful candidates can request a temporary site letter from the instructor which confirms that the holder is competent to assemble, use, inspect, alter and dismantle mobile access towers. Official PASMA certificates and photo id cards are usually issued within 4 weeks of the course. Training is also required for working at low level on folding towers or podium steps. The standard course doesn’t cover the use of low-level equipment. Please see our low-level and combined course pages for more information.
