This one (1) day course looks at ways you can work safely on construction sites where the work activity involves working above two metres from the ground level and where fall protection measures are required. This includes working on roofs and in double storey houses.

This does not allow you to erect scaffolding, but will give you the knowledge you need to make sure you stay as safe as possible when working up on a scaffold.

On completion of this program participants will be able to prpeare for work on scaffolds higher than 2 metres, safely access the work area at heights, complete your work at heights as safely as possible and exit the work area and transfer all materials, tools and equipment safely back down to the ground.

If you're studying in Australia from 1 January 2015, you will be required to have a Unique Student Identifer (USI).  It's free and easy to create your own USI.  Simply click on this link http://www.usi.gov.au/create-your-USI/Pages/default.aspx and follow the steps.  You must have a USI to enrol.
