Welcome to RSC Training
RSC Training are a training company based in London who provide accredited Work At Height courses for the International Powered Access Federation (IPAF), the Prefabricated Access Suppliers & Manufacturers Association (PASMA) and the Ladder Association (LA).
With Training Centres in London and Cambridgeshire, we are ideally situated to provide training within the South East, but with a network of trainers around the UK we are also able to provide training nationwide on customer premises.
What does IPAF training cover?
IPAF training courses cover persons to use machines known as Mobile Elevated Work Platforms, or MEWPs, within a working environment to gain access to work at height safely.
The type of machine the person needs to use will often determine which course they cover, as the machines are separated into categories. Typically, the most popular categories are 3a Mobile Vertical (Scissor Lift) and 3b Mobile Boom (Cherry Picker), however the 1b Static Boom (Trailor/Truck/Lorry/Tracked Mounted) is also popular for a variety of different work.
The machines used at our Training Centre, shown in the pictures right, can be covered in one day in either a single, dual, or triple category course and will allow the person to use any machines within those categories covered afterwards.
As well as using MEWPs, IPAF training courses also cover such things as Harness training, Management training and the Loading/Unloading of MEWPs on to vehicles for transportation.
What does PASMA training cover?
PASMA training courses cover persons to build and use equipment known as Mobile Access Towers, or Tower Scaffolding, within a working environment to gain access to work at height safely.
Towers can be built to various different designs so depending on what the person needs to work from can often determine which course they cover. Typically, the starting point and most popular course is the Towers For Users course, allowing the person to build a single bay tower vertically to a maximum freestanding height of 8m outside and 12m inside.
The equipment used at our Training Centres, shown in the pictures right, can be covered in one day as a standard course, a half day Low Level Access course, or a one day Combined course.
As well as standard building of towers, they can also be built to different configurations depending on the access requirements. PASMA training courses also cover building Towers On Stairways, Cantilever Towers, Towers With Bridges, Linked Towers and Large Deck Towers.
What does Ladder training cover?
Ladder Association training courses cover persons to select and use equipment such as Ladders, Step Ladders and Step Stools, within a working environment to gain access to work at height safely.
Ladders can be suitable equipment for jobs that are of a low risk and a short duration in nature, so depending on the job requirements can often determine which course the person needs to cover. Typically, a standard Ladder & Step Ladder User course will help a person determine when to (and when not to) use a ladder.
The equipment used at our Training Centres, shown in the pictures right, can be covered in a half day course for either User or Inspection level, or a full day Combined course.
As well as using Ladders, Ladder Association training also covers Management training for those overseeing others using Ladders & Step Ladders in the working environment.
