Scaffold inspection courses

Scaffold inspection training is available for anyone who has the need to inspect scaffold structures on site.  Courses are available at all levels:  basic for those who would like to increase their knowledge of scaffold inspection and more advanced for those who are required to inspect steel and system scaffolding and aluminium towers.  To keep inspection skills up-to-date, we also offer an annual refresher course.

Traditional Scaffold Appreciation

This two-day scaffold course will enable people to improve their knowledge of basic access scaffolding and explore scaffold inspection techniques.  It covers the requirements of BS5973 and BSEN 12811 in terms of scaffold construction, stability, loading and use.

The legal requirements for the inspection of temporary scaffold structures made of steel in the “Work at Height Regulations 2005 are also covered.

To learn about the erection of scaffolding, have a look at our System Scaffolding training courses.

This course carries CITB grant approval.
