PASMA are committed to the highest standards of practice and operate the industry standard training scheme which trains thousands of delegates each year through a select network of approved training centres. All PASMA training centres are audited annually to ensure that they continue to meet the stringent standard set by us.
In addition to the renowned Towers for Users course, the association also delivers a range of specialist courses. These courses enjoy an enviable reputation amongst management and health and safety practitioners, who seek objective proof of competence for staff engaged in the assembly, use, inspection and dismantling of towers.
At BSD Training we can carryout the following PASMA courses;
Towers for users
PASMA’s flagship course, attracting in excess of 70,000 delegates a year, is aimed at personnel who will be responsible for assembling, dismantling, moving and inspecting mobile access towers when using 3T or Advance Guardrail (AGR) systems.
Low Level Access Course
This half day course is intended for users of low level access equipment (< 2.5m) made from prefabricated tower components, such as folding step units and folding tower units. The course gives an overview of regulations, legislation and product standards and covers current best practice, inspection of low level access units and hazards to be avoided in depth.
Combined Low Level Access and Towers for Users Course
This combined course provides delegates with both the Towers for Users and the Low Level Access qualifications.
Towers on Stairs Course
Towers on Stairs teaches delegates how to build stepped towers. The course covers current legislation, regulations and guidance for towers in general, and focuses on hazards specific to using them on stairs. Both theory and practical sessions are held during this full day course.
Work at Height Essentials
This half day course is designed to cover the essential points for those working at height. It provides vital information about the use of mobile access towers, plus an insight into the use of all forms of access equipment as represented by the member organisations of the Access Industry Forum (AIF).
