Course Objectives is to ensure people who are given the responsibility by their Employer to erect Kwikstage 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 Basic Erector Certificate of Competence (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 comply fully 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.

This will need to be undertaking before current certificate expires. This is a 3 day course. Contact us for more info.
This is a Three Day Course
Qualified Basic Erectors are trained over two days to erect scaffolding up to a maximum platform height of 10 mtrs. this training includes the installation and safe use of Gin wheels to move components up & down the structure. Tie Patterns are covered and additional bracing & stabilising requirements.
The third day is a practical skills assessment of the squad erecting a fifth lift up to 10 mtrs, inspection/recording, striking completely.
Venue Practical Requirements
Scaffold must be against a building which is at least 12 mtrs high and constructed of suitable materials to allow anchor type ties to be installed.
The elevation the scaffold is erected along must be at least 6mtrs long.
Additional 3 Day Modules are available covering:
Kwikstage Bridging Units.
Please note* Erectors are not allowed to use ladder beams or unit beams, these components are only to be used by scaffolders)
