Training in brief
This practical course teaches scaffolders all knowledge and abilities necessary to lead one or multiple scaffolding teams as a foreman.
Small causes, great consequences
A railing that is not securely fastened. Taking off the safety helmet for a moment because of the heat. A split second without paying attention… an accident on or around scaffolds can happen anytime. Did you know that every year hundreds of serious accidents happen in the immediate working environment of the scaffolder, of which 10 to 30 are fatal? As a responsible employer or client, you want to prevent accidents no matter the cost. Especially since you may receive a considerable fine when it cannot be proven whether your employees have the appropriate skills.
Goal of the training
The training Foreman Scaffolding educates scaffolders with the proper training, experience and capabilities into becoming foreman. Trainees learn all skills necessary to lead one or several scaffolding teams. The achieved (business) certificate of professional competence is your proof of an employee who meets the requirements according to the Scaffolding directive.
Candidates have attended a relevant MBO- or equivalent education. Also, they possess the certificate ‘1st Engineer Scaffolding / Stb B’ and have the proper professionalism and leadership skills.
Level measurement test basic level
Only candidates with a minimum of basic knowledge and skills are allowed to successfully complete the training. The basic level is measured in advance through a self-developed independent level measurement, in cooperation with Eureka Exams.
Candidates under the basic level will get 1 or more days of extra lessons before they start the regular training. On the other hand, trainees can (in theory) start directly with the exam if they have the necessary basic knowledge and skills. We discuss the outcome of the measurement and the possibilities extensively with u and the candidate.
