System Scaffold Erector – Cuplok

Cuplok Basic Erector

Course objective is to ensure people who are given the responsibility by their employer to erect Cuplok System Scaffold Structures up to a maximum platform height of 6 metres (8 metres working) can do so in a safe manner in accordance with SG4:22, the guidance provided by the system manufacturer and current legislation. 

An In-house Erector Competency Certificate (valid for 3 years) will be awarded to all participants who successfully complete the technical paper, and show an acceptable level of knowledge & skill with the system during the practical workshops and final practical skills assessment.

We use our client’s venue (subject to suitability) and equipment or equipment hired in for the purpose of the training (we provide a component list of required equipment). If your venue is not suitable, we have access to a fully equipped training venue in Immingham, with our supply partners Scaffolding Supplies Limited. 

In order to fully comply with SG4:22 Guidance our clients will be required to have eight (8)  “Kwikstep battens made up to our design prior to the training, we will supply design drawings for this purpose. These can also be purchased ready-made from our supply partners Scaffolding Supplies Limited.
