16 Hour Competent Person Fall Protection Course

Enform Rig Work Fall Protection

What is the 16 Hour Competent Person Fall Protection Course?


This two day competent person Fall Protection Course is for anyone who will be required to extensively use fall protection on worksites.  This includes, construction workers, swing stage,  drilling/service workers, stagehands, scaffolders and tradesmen.

It is a 16-hour course designed for all workers who have challenging fall protection requirements. New workers who do not yet have field time with fall protection equipment also benefit from this course.

This two day course is much more in-depth than the standard one day training course that most construction workers take and has an extensive practical component, which is held outdoors on the drilling and service training rigs located at our site.
