•A basic design scaffold
Course Entry RequirementsThis is a course aimed at persons responsible for inspecting tube and fitting scaffold and completing a report in accordance to the Work at Height Regulations 2005.
Industry experience alone does not make a delegate eligible to attend an advanced SITS course. They must meet at least one of the following criteria before being accepted onto the course;
- Hold a CISRS BASIC SITS card for a minimum of 2 years.
- Hold a CISRS Scaffolder card for a minimum of 2 years
