Recent Training Accomplishments

A number of our site staff have recently successfully completed training for Advanced Scaffolding and Tensile Load Testing of Scaffolding Anchors using a Portable Test Meter.

The Advanced Scaffolder course gives scaffolders who have a minimum of 1 years’ experience with a working knowledge of methods of erecting and dismantling highly complex designed scaffolds.

The Tensile Load Testing of Scaffolding programme covers:

  • A simple method of calculating the loads to test too
  • Number of tests to carry out
  • Setting of the test meter bridging stand and use of adaptors
  • How to test long scaffold screws or protruding threaded studs
  • Slip gauge reading, load gauge reading and load relaxation
  • Kilo newton conversion to tonnes 

We are pleased to see our scaffolders continue to excel in their fields and advance to the next phase of their training and development.
