This Nationally Accredited training course will give participants the skills and knowledge required to inspect, maintain and test a range of equipment. It includes inspecting response equipment, testing response equipment and cleaning, maintaining and restowing equipment/devices/tools.
While this course provides the training and qualification for height safety equipment inspection, participants will require experience with height safety equipment to further familiarise themselves with the common faults, wear and damage to look for when inspecting equipment. For example, working in a construction site where height safety equipment is used.
This course includes an online practical component. This takes the form of a video assessment, where participants are to demonstrate cleaning and inspection methods. To remain current and updated within the industry it is recommended that participants complete this course every 2 years.
