PASMA Mobile access tower training courses

All users of mobile access towers are required to have had appropriate training for their safe assembly, alteration, dismantling or relocation. This is a requirement of the 2005 Working at Height Regulations. The PASMA course is the UK's industry standard for tower training. PASMA courses can take place on your own premises or at one of our Plantfinder’s Approved PASMA training centres, situated in Ayrshire, Stirling or Edinburgh.
