COURSE OBJECTIVE

This course will provide theoretical and practical training necessary to assemble, use and dissemble scaffolding effectively and safely. adapting knowledge to the current rules assembling and dissembling , storage and preservation of different scaffolding systems supported. also updated and increased knowledge about the importance of the development of reference standard established safety conditions that must be met on a scaffold. identifying the main risks that can be found and the main  aspects of prevention and protection.
