1st Engineer Scaffolding – Basic training
In this training ‘1st Engineer Scaffolding’ the participants are prepared in 4 days by an experienced trainer for the exam ‘1st Engineer Scaffolding’. On day 5, the exam is taken and, if the result is satisfactory, the participant will receive the DNV-GL certificate of professional competence ‘1st Engineer Scaffolding’ (formerly known as ‘Steigerbouwer B’). This is a personal certification under ISO 17024. With this certificate the professional competence requirement of the Guideline Scaffolding is met. This stipulates that from 1 January 2017 the professional competence must be demonstrated. In this training we work with high-quality scaffolding scaffolding material.

• Drawing up a material state on the basis of drawings / sketches of complex scaffolding;
• Assembly, adjustment and disassembly of scaffolding on the basis of data provided by the client;
