The PASMA course is about making sure you have the right skills & knowledge in place to both erect and dismantle Aluminium Scaffold Towers.

The Prefabricated Access Suppliers & Manufacturers Association (PASMA) course is for you if you are a supervisor, manager or operative who works with Alloy Scaffold Towers on construction sites or in other work-based industrial uses.

PASMA courses are about making sure you qualify for the PASMA Card, which is widely recognised throughout a wide range of industries and of course the HSE (Health & Safety Executive). Holders of the PASMA card are considered as having proved their competence in their ability to safely erect, inspect and dismantle Aluminium Scaffold Towers.

It is important to hold a PASMA card as many large contractors and employers will not allow staff to work in and around towers unless they have a valid PASMA card.

The PASMA course covers the following content:

  • Relevant legislation & regulation relating to mobile Alloy Scaffold Towers
  • The official PASMA code of practice.
  • Current guidance on working at height in relation to Alloy Scaffold Towers
  • Product standards EN1004: 2004
  • Tower assembly, altering and dismantling
  • Current best practice for fall protection
  • Tower inspection & recording of inspections

The course is delivered by a mix of theory & practical sessions and at the end of the course, delegates have to take an assessment paper to pass the course.

PASMA courses last around 6 hours and you can attend a course at one of our 30+ specialist PASMA training venues situated around the UK. PASMA courses can also be run at your location of choice if you have suitable facilities that include an indoor area with 6 meters of height clearance. For more details please call 0800 130 3225.
