Scaffold Awareness Course
Please contact us for upcoming course dates.
The Scaffold Awareness course is designed as an introductory course for those personnel who wish to know the basics of modular scaffold erection and dismantling. Students will gain skills and knowledge relating to the handling, erection and dismantling of scaffolding systems restricted to heights of 4 metres or less. It is suitable for labourers, prospective scaffolders, supervisors and graduate engineers.
As this is entry level training, Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is not able to be offered for this course.
This course may include some or all of the following delivery modes: classroom, online/eLearning, workplace or blended options.
There are no pre-requisite qualifications for this course.
Assessment activities must all be conducted whilst communicating in English, and interpreters are not allowed to be used. Students require a reasonable command of English and basic numeracy skills to complete the assessment tool for this course. Only minor adjustments for personal or workplace reasons are allowed.
Hearing impaired persons may use sign language to communicate via an interpreter (only when approved by the Regulator).
The course may involve some manual handling, climbing, lifting, carrying, and height work. It must be clearly understood that some disabilities may preclude a student from participating safely, and this may restrict entry to the course. For details and alternatives, please refer to AITAC administrator for advice.
While we will make every effort to cater to the specific needs of students, decisions relating to safety are not subject to negotiation.
This course may involve working in a warehouse, construction or outdoor environment, and performing High Risk Work. Students are therefore required to wear suitable Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) during training.
When attending the course, students must bring/wear:
- Fully enclosed shoes or boots (steel-capped safety shoes recommended)
- Drill shirt and pants (full cover – ankle to wrist)
We will provide hi-vis vests, books, pens, tools and other resources needed for the course.
Students who do not have the appropriate PPE will not be permitted to participate in the practical component of the course and may have to be rescheduled at another available time. This may incur additional fees (please refer to the Student Handbook for specific fee details).
Training which takes place in the workplace under supervision may require different or additional PPE dependent upon the site rules and procedures. If this is the case, requirements should be discussed with your employer/supervisor.
The duration of this course is 2 days. Study may also include pre-course learning activities.
The course is delivered at 9 Snyder Court, Tullamarine VIC, or can be delivered at other suitable workplaces by arrangement.
