This working at heights course will provide you with the skills and knowledge required to conduct a risk assessment of the working environment and will ensure that you have the practical experience and knowledge required to safely conduct work-related activities from heights with a focus on fall prevention rather than fall arrest.

This training addresses the theoretical component of working at heights. This training does not give you the practical skills required to perform work at heights.
