SCAFFOLDING TRAINING - ERECT, USE AND DISMANTLE ACCESS SCAFFOLD

Duration

3 Days

Course Overview

The qualifying learner will acquire the knowledge and skills required by the industry to function as a scaffold erector. Their functions will include leading a scaffold team. This includes the ability to safely and efficiently deploy the required resources to erect and dismantle access scaffolding. This unit standard will serve, in conjunction with related unit standards, to develop the qualifying learner to function as a scaffold erector in an access scaffold team.

The qualifying learner will be capable of:

  • Interpreting basic drawings and instructions for the erection of access scaffolding.
  • Coordinating resources for the erection of access scaffolding.
  • Erecting and using access scaffolding.
  • Dismantling access scaffolding.
