PASMA (Prefabricated Access Supplies and Manufacturers Association) is the leading industry body for all matters relating to mobile access towers in the UK.

What should I do if my PASMA membership card is lost or stolen?
If you have been trained via Training Plus and have lost your PASMA card or had one stolen you must contact us and we can arrange a replacement sent. There will be a small fee applied by PASMA to incorporate the administration charge. You will be required to provide proof of identity.
What happens when my PASMA card expires?
After five years you will need to re-sit a written and practical test. Upon completion you will be re-issued with a competency certificate and encapsulated credit card sized photo which grants you membership for another five years.
Am I going to feel safe during my course participation?
Beside the fact that our staff and the environment of the school will make you feel happy and safe, CCTV is operating in most of the school’s areas.
I’m getting on a bit, is it like going back to school and will I feel out of place?
Not at all. A large percentage of our learners are mature students simply keeping up to date with current standards. Everybody is made to feel welcome in the centre.
At the end of the PASMA for towers theory session you will take a short theory test which, if you pass, will allow you to take the practical session in the afternoon. A practical assessment will follow, which, after successful completion will entitle you to a PASMA certificate and photo card valid for five years. PASMA (Prefabricated Access Supplies and Manufacturers Association) is the recognised focus and authority for mobile access towers. A booklet containing notes and course content will be issued to all delegates together with a current code of practice booklet.
