Do you want to learn how to assemble scaffolding efficiently and safely?

Become a scaffolder

Working on a construction site is undoubtedly not the easiest of jobs. It requires employees to be not only fit, but also competent in the use of specialised equipment. Investing in a scaffolding qualification course is therefore a very good decision if you are considering broadening your skills in the construction sector.

During the scaffolding assembly course at OSO, you will gain the necessary theoretical knowledge and practical skills to safely and efficiently perform scaffolding assembly work. During our training, you will not only have the opportunity to confirm your newly acquired skills, but also gain valuable experience needed in your future work. Under the watchful eye of our experienced trainers, anyone can acquire a license to install scaffolding.  

Who can take part in the training? 

Our trainers are experienced staff at a high level, ready to train anyone, regardless of the level of previous experience in the work of a scaffolding fitter.  

In order to participate in the installation course conducted at OSO, you must meet the following requirements: 

  • 18 years or older, 
  • Education at least elementary, 
  • No medical contraindications to practise as a scaffolder. 

Anyone who meets all of the above conditions can take advantage of the OSO company's offer to expand their competences with qualifications for the assembly of scaffolding. 

What is the scaffold assembler's course? 

Like most other courses offered at OSO, the scaffolding installer course consists of three parts: theoretical, practical and a final exam. The qualifications gained on the course are unlimited, anyone who completes the training course with a pass in the examination will be awarded a scaffolding licence. What do the different parts of the training look like? 

The first part of the scaffold assembler's course is the theoretical part. At this stage, students will learn a number of basic issues needed to work as a scaffolding fitter. The scope of information provided in the theoretical part includes: 

  • Health and safety rules used in the assembly and disassembly of scaffolding, 
  • Ways of keeping adequate technical records, 
  • Rules for the use of scaffolding, 
  • Types of pipes used in scaffolding assembly, 
  • Ways to fold the scaffolding correctly, 
  • Activities before and after scaffolding work.

In the theoretical part, our training staff provides the trainees with all the information they need to work safely on the scaffolding. Additionally, classes in the theoretical part can be conducted remotely, at the client's request, via our online education platform. After a series of lectures on theoretical knowledge, the time comes for the practical part of the course. The practical part consists of exercises in designated facilities. 

Final exam 

At the end of the course, each trainee takes an examination consisting of two parts. The scaffolding assembly course concludes with an examination consisting, like the course, of two parts: theoretical and practical. The exam takes place before an Examination Board appointed by the Institute of Construction and Rock Mining Mechanisation based in Warsaw. The first step is the theoretical part. It consists of a written exam with both closed and open questions. In the next, practical part of the exam, the trainees demonstrate in front of a commission the skills they have acquired during their training in relation to scaffolding work. Among other things, they must demonstrate the assembly and disassembly of the scaffolding themselves. Anyone who passes both parts of the examination will be awarded a scaffolding certificate. 

How much does the scaffold assembler's course cost? 

Our company offers courses for individuals as well as companies wishing to broaden the professional skills of their employees. In the first case, an open course is the best choice. Classes of this type are organised regularly and anyone who meets the basic requirements can take part. Training dates are regularly posted on the calendar on our website, along with prices.
