The Swedish Work Environment Authority prescribes (AFS 2013: 4) that anyone who is directly or indirectly responsible for, plans or assembles / manages scaffolding must have undergone training. This applies regardless of previous experience. Branschutbildarna Sverige AB offers in accordance with these regulations ”General Education Scaffolding” which gives theoretical authority to build scaffolding up to nine meters. No practical teacher-led training is included in this course.

Course Content

  • Rules for positions in Sweden.
  • Risks and safety when working with scaffolding.
  • Understanding of plans for construction, dismantling or changing scaffolding.
  • Methods for up and down transport / lifting of scaffolding material.
  • Different types and brands of prefabricated scaffolding.
  • Different methods of protection against falls during construction and dismantling of scaffolding.
  • Anchoring of scaffolding.

This is How it Works

The course consists of 5 partial exams with 10 questions in each. A total of 50 questions. All questions are so-called ”cross-questions” where you have to click on the correct answer option. You must answer 9 of the 10 questions in each exam correctly to move on to next exam. Repeat the tests as many times as you want during the 60 days you have access to the course. You must take the tests in turn from 1-5.After each partial test with approved result, that result is saved and you do not need to repeat it more than once. You can therefore continue to the next partial exam immediately or at a later time during the 60 days you have access to the course. When you have passed all the tests with approved result, you can immediately download your personal course certificate.
