The updated CSA Z91 swing stage standard requires that all operators/occupants of suspended scaffolds are properly trained in the operation, safety, troubleshooting, and emergency procedures for swing stage operations. This course is designed as hands-on practical learning combined with theory-based training.
The course covers the following topics:
- Suspension System Safety and Operation

At the end of the course, workers will be required to write a theory-based test which includes multiple choice questions and answers.

Upon successful completion of the course and passing mark in the written exam, students will be issued their certification in the form of a plastic, wallet size card which is valid for 3 years from the date of the course.
