The PASMA Combined (2 courses): Tower for Users and Low Level training course is to provide all personnel with the knowledge to safely identify and inspect, assemble, dismantle and use, move and alter mobile access towers, low level access units and podiums in accordance with the manufacturers instructions, current regulations and accepted approved methods. Also to have an understanding of current relevant legislation and regulations on working at height on this type of equipment. The Working at Height Regulations (2005) require that the assembly, dismantling or alteration of Mobile Access Towers should only be undertaken by a competent person, or if being trained, under the supervision of a competent person. A PASMA qualification is proof of competency and widely accepted throughout the UK.
