The Certificate III in Scaffolding (CPC30911) program offered by WH&S More Skills is designed for participants who have prior scaffolding experience in the construction industry or other related industries. The duration of the program is tailored to each individual student and is dependent on your prior learning experiences. Students with no previous scaffolding experience can expect to complete their qualification over the duration of up to 12 months.
What is Scaffolding?
Scaffolders plan, build and erect scaffolding and working platforms for construction projects, as well as building stands and tiered seating for public events such as concerts or sporting events. They inspect the area that requires scaffolding and make calculations to determine what kind of scaffolding is required, unload it, fit its tubing and braces together to form frameworks, and fix ladders, rails and other attachments to the scaffolding. They are also responsible for checking and maintaining scaffolding equipment, inspecting scaffolding structures for safety, and taking down scaffolding when the job is done. Scaffolders work all over the state, assisting and enabling the construction of everything from schools to skyscrapers.
