Ladder Training Specialists

Safe Working on Ladders

We are the only provider in the south west to offer training in safe working from ladders (SWOL). This system allows the use of ladders for many repair, maintenance and install tasks where they may not have been suitable in the past.

Recognised Training

The CTC-SWOL course is based on industry standard guidance from the Confederation of Aerial Industries in the use of a harness system when working on ladders to carry out installation, repair and maintenance work on buildings, roofs etc. The course has been designed in-house by a Chartered Member of IOSH who is also a qualified trainer and assessor.
