Thank you for your interest in Competent Person Training for Frame Scaffolding.
Please review the information below to be certain the course will meet your objectives. If you wish to register, complete the form HERE and fax back to us as soon as possible.
The Competent Person Training For Scaffolding course was developed by the Scaffold & Access Industry
Association (SAIA). Brewer Equipment Co. is an Accredited Training Institute and is authorized by the SAIA to teach the course. The course covers OSHA regulations, scaffold components, foundation requirements, platform requirements, fall protection systems, access methods, and erection and dismantling techniques.
A separate Scaffold User Hazard Awareness presentation is included. A hands-on erection & dismantling session is a required component of the course. Students must be physically able to participate in the erection and dismantling of scaffolds.
The course is divided into four components. Home study of the course material in advance, followed by a one day class that includes a review session, a hands on session, and a final exam. Students will receive the course manual two to three weeks in advance of attending the one day review class. The manual contains fourteen chapters. Each chapter has a learning objective, the study material, and review questions. Answers for the review questions are provided. It is a well documented fact that students who study the course material and answer the questions at the end of each chapter have a much higher pass rate on the final exam.
We strongly encourage each student to properly prepare for the course by completing one or two chapters a day. Upon completion of the course and attaining a passing grade of 70% on the final exam, students will receive a wall certificate and wallet size card issued by the SAIA indicating they have successfully completed the course.
Please understand, neither the SAIA or Brewer Equipment Co. can certify or designate your employee as “competent”. Only the worker’s employer may make that designation. This course is designed to provide your employees with the knowledge, demonstrated by hands on work and testing, to become a competent person. You, as the employer, can make the final decision that your employee is indeed competent and give the employee the authority the OSHA regulations require.
For your additional consideration, many companies will take advantage of the training opportunity to provide “Scaffold User Hazard Awareness Training” to all other employees that work on scaffolds. This training, included for those taking the CPT course, lasts approximately two hours and is presented at the beginning of the review day for the CPT students
