  • This module is designed to enable operatives to correctly install, inspect and examine the WalkAbout™ system and various devices for anchorage of the system. During training delegates will be expected to carry out activities at height.
  • This will provide an insight into the delegates’ ability to operate in such conditions. This is only an indication of their capability, as it is not possible to recreate exact working environments.
  • The actual height and exposure will be set out on the certification, but this is only to show what was included in the training.
  • The height shown on the certification is not intended to limit the height at which the delegate can operate. Further details of the training facilities, first aid provision, insurance, etc are available upon written request.
