Why Choose Us
In the first week we will begin your introduction with an induction explaining what will be required from you and what you can expect from the course, whilst also ensuring you will be ready, by the end of the 1st week, to carry out an operative test so you can obtain your CSCS qualification.
We believe the 1st week will be crucial to ensuring you are ready to progress further into the course as you will learn all you need to know about the materials and tools required to carry out the initial basic tasks.
Week 2 is where you will really begin to get a feel for scaffolding...
Throughout your 2nd week we will be taking you into the yard to take part in the daily duties including loading and unloading trucks, learning how we store all our materials away and how important it is that everything has a place.
During this practical training we will also be ensuring that you are made aware of how to carry out these basic tasks whilst being protected by our strict health and safety standards.
Week 3 will be all about kit maintenance.
Scaffolding is expensive to replace so in the 3rd week we aim to teach you how to get the most out of the kit used and what to look out for whilst carrying out your daily duties as you work your way up through the ranks.
In the 4th and final week of the programme you will be offered the chance to visit a live site.
If you have managed to complete your 1 day operative test and obtained your CSCS card you will be able to take part in the day's tasks along with our trained professionals.
This will be a chance for you to get the ultimate real feel for what scaffolding is all about.
