An exciting year ahead

48.3 Training            

48.3 Training Ltd was launched at the beginning of 2014. We deliver structured training solutions to scaffolding contractors wishing to bring their design service in-house and start their own technical departments, or professionally train their existing staff. 

Our training course content covers everything from mind-set and personal development, draughting and technical drawing, and technical calculation skills, to design management and risk assessment. Our trainees leave with everything they need to be successful and motivated technical design draughtsmen or design engineers.  

For the past ten months we have been successfully delivering training to some fantastic delegates from Connect Scaffolding Ltd, Anglewest Ltd and GKR Scaffolding Ltd and are currently operating at full capacity.

Watch out for the launch of more 48.3 Training courses this year.

48.3 International     

48.3 International has joined with strategic partners Falck Safety Services UAE to offer Scaffolding and Working at Height training across the GCC region. 

Having successfully become accredited by the Construction Industry Training Board (CITB) and the Prefabricated Access Suppliers and Manufacturers Association (PASMA) we will be bringing together the training expertise of Falck Safety Services and the technical knowledge of 48.3 to offer a number of innovative and fully accredited scaffolding education programmes. We are driving up the standard of both course content and training delivery across this region. 

The training programmes aim to improve safety performance and safeguard lives, increase workforce efficiency and productivity, and ultimately increase our client’s profit margins. 

It’s an exciting development for 48.3 and one that showcases our skills to a totally new market; we look forward to keeping you updated on its success throughout the year.
