PASMA Training Overview

Currently, PASMA training courses are the most extensively recognised form of mobile access tower training in the United Kingdom.

It’s required by the Work at Height Regulations of 2005 that anyone who’s using any form of mobile access tower has to be competent or under the direct supervision of a competent person.   This competent person must be able to demonstrate that they have sufficient knowledge, training and also experience to carry out their duties in a responsible manner.   They must also be able to understand potential hazards or possible technical defects which are related to either the work or the equipment.

PASMA training courses are specifically designed to train delegates in both the safe assembly, usage and dismantling of mobile access towers. Delegates who successfully complete the PASMA training courses will receive both a PASMA operator’s certificate and an identification card, valid for 5 years.
