The PASMA Work at Height (WAH) Essentials Course offers a minimum of 3½ hours of instruction and is designed to cover the essential points for those working at height. It provides vital information about the use of mobile access towers, plus an insight into the use of all forms of access equipment.

course but do have to demonstrate competence and understanding in working at height safely on mobile access towers.
On completion of this course the trainee will be aware of the relevant health and safety regulations, be aware of accident prevention and control and to be aware of the needs regarding personal protective equipment.
