Those who work from prefabricated units under 2.5m of height.

This e-learning module is ideal for those individuals who do not want time away from their job / workplace.

To take advantage of this, please follow the below steps;

  • Get in touch with us on 0845 460 460 - at this time you will be charged the full course cost.
  • Complete the theory e-learning module which can be done anytime, anywhere and on any device, at a pace which suits you.
  • (Compatible with PCs, Macs, tablets and smartphones on any modern internet browser)

  • Once you have completed and successfully passed the e-learning, please contact us to book your practical training and assessment at our PASMA approved Centre - you will be asked to provide evidence of successful completion of the e-learning certificate which is created / printed at the end of your e-learning.

*Delegates are required to attend our PASMA approved training Centre located at Llangefni within 90 days of completing the e-learning module to sit their theory exam and undertake practical training and assessment [this has been temporarily increased due to Covid-19].

  • You will need to bring a copy of your ‘certificate of completion’ to the course for the trainer to verify, without this you will be refused entry.

  • Upon entry to the course, you will be asked to complete an open book multiple choice questionnaire which is based on the knowledge gained from the e-learning.  This will be followed by a practical training and assessment session, with the duration dependent upon knowledge and experience.

Entry requirements:

Once you have completed the e-learning, you must also complete the practical assessment and testing at our PASMA approved Centre. On successful achievement, of all three parts, we will apply for your PASMA Certification/ID Card.

Completing the e-learning alone does not qualify you as a tower user; industry standards require both the knowledge gained in the e-learning theory session and assessed assembly and use of the equipment to demonstrate proficiency. 

Delivery:

Learning through a mix of e-learning, and practical exercises

Assessment:

  • Complete online e-learning module
  • Open book multiple choice questionnaire which is based on the knowledge gained from the e-learning.
