SGB-Cape provides specialised access scaffold training both internally and externally to the industry. The training courses are both theoretical and practically based. Formal competence assessment requires a pass mark of 80%. We offer these courses at our premises or on site depending on requirements.

  • Scaffold Erectors Training
    • Module 1 (Technical)
    • Module 2 (Team Leader)

  • Basic Scaffold Inspection – 2 day course (theory and practical)

  • Scaffold End User Training – 1 day course that focuses on safe work practices whilst working at heights including use of safety harnesses and other best practices. The course includes safe work procedures during an emergency situation i.e. a person hanging from his safety harness.
