    I was going to say one foot after the other, then when I re-read your post (not just the title) I realised you weren't asking about a H&S Training course of the use of a ladder

    I've done the PASMA scaffold training but not the working at heights training; legally, I can climb up any basic scaffold tower to whatever height it's at (e.g. 6m here), but I can't quickly pop up a ladder to do anything. Theoretically I suppose I should build the scaffold tower to check every WAP instead of borrowing a ladder.

    Remember the three points of contact.

    I am trained to:
    Work at heights.
    Lift boxes
    use/build scaffold towers
    use scissor lifts
    use fire extinguishers.


    inhouse training in IT is shocking. A short course for me in something relevant would use most of the budget so they put me on completely useless HSE courses to prove they are providing training.

    on a more relevant note; ITILv3 is probably the most relevant course for anyone concerned with managing ICT.
