A PASMA training course can be a vital part of any role involving mobile access towers in October 2023, but it is more than just a qualification. Towers can be an inherently scary piece of equipment to use, and getting trained in them might seem like a tough task that will take you months of work to achieve.
However, with good PASMA training courses in Whickham, our training providers can offer users course options that will get them ready for using mobile access towers with the best possible understanding of how they work. If you are considering starting your training, or know that you have to, then our courses can help.
With the Prefabricated Access Supplier and Manufacturers Association, you can get training on every part of working with towers on-site, as well as regulations and inspection practices associated with towers. This could be assembly, movement, safety, management, or inspection, among other fields.
We offer a number of great PASMA Training courses in Whickham and are more than happy in assisting you on anything from price, to times, to locations.
PASMA certification has a lot of benefits, but the most obvious one is the knowledge associated with this training. Mobile access towers can be a hard piece of equipment to use, and the more you know, the easier it becomes to construct and use them without referring to instruction manuals.
While not all of the courses delivered to delegates will relate to physically demanding work, they promote the safe use of mobile access towers and offer a chance to practice during each training course without putting you in a real-world situation. They also give the participants a chance to discuss working with these towers and how they should be handled.
The PASMA courses also act like an assessment of your skills, as well as a way to prove that you are in good health. They develop your skills through practical training, and successful candidates have ‘passed the inspection’, enabling them to offer their services to their company (or as a freelancer/contractor).
Completing certain courses can qualify you for a PASMA photo ID card, which certifies that you have attended training courses. Like a license, this tells employers that you are fully qualified to operate these towers. Each card is valid for 5 years from the day that it is issued.
Since your card is only valid for 5 years, you will have to refresh it every half-decade. This enables you to keep up with current relevant legislation involving mobile access towers and update your record with anything that might interfere with your normal skills: drug dependence, psychiatric illness, heart disease, high blood pressure or impaired limb function, to name a few.
If you want to know more about what this card offers, and how it is given out on competition of enough training courses, then do not hesitate to contact us for an overview of the process. We can also tell you which courses will qualify you and how long it will take to complete said courses.

Each PASMA course is designed to fit a particular specialist subject, whether that is situations, you will encounter on construction sites or advice on how to safely assemble and dismantle a standard mobile access tower.
Each course in Whickham Tyne and Wear has an expected duration, but this duration can increase if another session is needed for any reason. If you are new to this kind of training, then there is only one place to start:
This is a starter users’ course that aims to cover all of the practical training required to work at heights. The course explains how mobile access towers are used in general, as well as additional details about the other access equipment that a trainee may have to operate in the future.
This is the starting point for most PASMA Training courses in Tyne and Wear, forming the basis that delegates will need if they want to handle practical work in the future.
Since this is an essential course, successful candidates can move on to any other major training course they like. If you are not sure how to plan out your future courses, you can always get in touch and let us know: each course can provide candidates with something new and useful, no matter their role.

Towers for Users is arguably the most successful PASMA course available, drawing in thousands of delegates each year. This course provides candidates with the knowledge needed to assemble, dismantle, inspect and move mobile access towers of various designs, including AGR and 3T systems.
The Low-Level course focuses on low-level access units, such as folding steps and folding towers, that are made from prefabricated components. Delegates are taught how to observe regulations and standards while inspecting their units for hazards or potential safety issues.
This course, as well as the previous one, are available in a combined PASMA course called Combined Low-Level Access and Towers for Users Course.
The Towers on Stairs PASMA training course is aimed at teaching delegates to construct stepped towers, along with the inherent hazards of using them on stairs and the practical aspects of making them safe for use. This includes both theory and practical sessions spread across a full day of learning.
This course is meant to provide experienced tower users with a better understanding of complex tower builds, including the calculations needed to manage weight counterbalancing and cantilever designs. It also details additional information about how towers are assembled and properly balanced.
This course is slightly different from others since delegates must have passed Towers for Users first to get a basic knowledge of how tower design and construction work at a simpler level.
Towers for Professional Riggers is an even higher-tier towers course that provides delegates with a five-day overview of practical and theory work on unusual tower designs. This is meant to cover stations where standard access towers are not sufficient and custom or alternate designs are needed.
This can also detail situations where towers have to be built beyond the manufacturer’s instructions for various reasons and how to manage tower stability and height regulations when working with a complex tower design. It includes both theory and practical test and experience sessions.
Towers for Managers provides further information about tower management and planning to delegates who are not going to be operating them. This allows managers to get the best experience possible when it comes to overviewing assembly, disassembly, movement and adjustment of any towers.
Instructor training is an option for any delegate that wants the knowledge they need to instruct others. Successful delegates can become PASMA instructors and offer their training services to other trainees or peers or use the information to inform another tower team on both theory and practical matters.
Potential instructors must be in a member company of PASMA or currently undertaking PASMA courses. This can also involve some light paperwork, even if you plan to become a freelance instructor that provides the same knowledge to other members, customers and clients.
If you want to know more about the criteria behind becoming a PASMA tower instructor, then get in touch with any questions you might have.
If you are ready to start training under PASMA towers courses and the PASMA Code of Practice, then you need to get registered for the initial training session. If you have already completed Work at Height and are looking into further courses, then you simply have to be registered for whatever you plan to take next.
For specific details on the locations that certain courses are taking place, you can get in touch with us about your specific needs. Not all courses are available to practice at all times, and each official training site may only host certain courses at a time – we can find the nearest site to your location in Whickham hosting your chosen course.
Good health is important to many of these scaffold tower training sessions. You may have to go through a basic health assessment in Tyne and Wear for more physical sessions: physically fit candidates are going to find these courses easier. If you are not physically fit, there may be certain safety notices to follow, depending on the course.
Remember that your health can impact your chance of course completion and put your team in danger in a real-world situation. Part of the training assessment is understanding that your work impacts your team, and your team require you to follow regulations while you manage your towers.
If you have more questions about a certain assessment or how to earn a certificate from your training, then you can contact us through the normal website contact details. If you can’t find an answer on the site, then please feel free to let us know if you need more information. Some details change too often to keep updated on a website, and others are only specific to certain delegates.
