We are the organisation behind the new INTERNATIONAL SCAFFOLDER training standard providing recognised qualifications for the global scaffolding market.
In developing INTERNATIONAL SCAFFOLDER we were able to draw from our extensive experience of providing training and consultancy for scaffolding and access around the globe. We identified the need for an internationally recognised for scaffolder training and competence assessment standard and thereby designed this scheme.
This scheme has been developed to provide a training standard for scaffolders at various grades and to give clients and contractors reassurance that any Scaffolder, Supervisor or Inspector who holds a Simian Skill certificate or record card, has achieved a level of skills and knowledge for their trade. The Simian Skill mission is to provide an education in scaffolding and access to best practice
