Scaffolding Training Courses

Kearney Training and Consultancy Ltd is the leading Health & Safety training provider for Scaffolding Training Courses throughout Ireland.
We provide 4 courses in relation to Scaffolding Training which include CSCS Basic Scaffolding Level 1, CSCS Advanced Scaffolding Level 2, CSCS Mobile Tower Scaffolding & Scaffolding Inspection(LANTRA Awards).

Formal training is required for those who erect, add to, alter or dismantle a scaffold. The training should include instruction on any risks involved. The extent of training required will depend on the type of work normally undertaken and on the type of scaffold.
The minimum acceptable standard of training is the approved Construction Skills Certification Scheme (CSCS) for Basic Scaffolders, or an equivalent training programme accredited by SOLAS. Scaffolding activities beyond the range of general access scaffolds require the erector to be trained to an advanced level.
