The Operators' Training Centre is a professional training unit, providing services for people starting out or retraining in a particular trade, as well as for companies looking to improve the professional skills of their employees. Our staff is made up of competent, experienced instructors and lecturers who have conducted hundreds of classes on behalf of individual clients, as well as companies from various industries. During the classes, we discuss health and safety issues as well as other theoretical aspects relevant to the scaffolding profession.

When deciding to take our course, it is useful to know what a scaffolder does. A scaffolder is a person who is responsible for erecting structures consisting of elements such as platforms and working frames, among others. Scaffolding activities are very important for renovation and construction work that takes place at great heights. It is the fitter's responsibility to regularly secure the structure and check its technical condition. The assembler is also responsible for the safe dismantling of scaffolding. Scaffolding is a temporary structure usually made of metal or wood. They are used for painting, repairing and making alterations to the facade of buildings.

Nowadays, new housing estates and other construction projects are constantly being built in cities and small towns. Thus, the demand for scaffolders is increasing. Employers make no secret of the fact that they have work for several years ahead, so they are looking for people who are experienced and specialised in this profession. Our training centre provides opportunities for upskilling and learning the profession from scratch.

Working at height involves many risks, which is why our centre prioritises all safety issues. We present ways to reduce the risk of hazardous situations occurring while performing work. As part of the class programme, preventive measures are discussed that will allow you to perform your duties on the job in a safe manner. We also instruct on how to build a stable, well-anchored scaffold.
