What is PASMA Training?

PASMA Stands for Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ and Manufacturers Association and is a widely-recognised certification for those who work at height using Mobile Access Towers.

PASMA training will teach you skills such as how to assemble, dismantle and relocate Mobile Access Towers. This training will show employers that you have received a high level of training and have the certification to prove you are compliant.

All of our PASMA courses are taught by a PASMA approved instructor who will help ensure you have the skills and knowledge needed to safely operate a Mobile Access Tower. The length of your courses will depend on which one of our PASMA courses you decide to complete, with some courses taking longer than others.

We offer PASMA training at all 4 of our training depots which includes locations in Portsmouth, Southampton, Reading and Worthing.

You may also be interested in our IPAF courses.  Our IPAF courses provide you with the practical and theory skills to operate mobile elevated working platforms (MEWPS).


Photocard & Certificate

PASMA stands for Prefabricated Access Suppliers’ and Manufacturers’ Association, and is a widely-recognised certification for those who work at height using Mobile Access Towers.

What qualification will I get?

Once you have successfully completed one of our courses, you will be issued with a Photocard and Certificate for the course you have passed. Your PASMA card is proof that you have received accredited training and that you are competent at working with Mobile Access Towers.

If you need to work at height, training is important so that equipment can be used effectively and safely whilst complying with legal requirements. In addition, the trainee will gain new skills. PASMA training ensures that within a company the right safety measures and accident prevention has been put into place.

All of our PASMA courses are designed by industry professionals, to create high-quality and efficient training. It is useful to obtain your PASMA qualifications because it shows to employers that you are compliant and that you have received the correct training for working on Mobile Access Towers at heights.

How long is my certification valid for?

These qualifications are valid for up to 5 years. Once your PASMA qualification has expired, you will be required to complete a refresher course which will help allow you to obtain a new Photocard and certificate.
