Three Cornwall College construction lecturers have successfully completed an industry-recognised instructor training course and secured a donation of brand new scaffolding equipment from Brandon Hire into the bargain.
Carl Moyle, John Ninnis and Jem Stevens, all lecturers from the College’s Faculty of Technology, completed the PASMA (Pre-fabricated Access Suppliers and Manufacturers Association) instructor training over a four-week period on campus, with a trainer sent by the association.
The accreditation, plus the donation of two new scaffolding towers totalling £5k from Brandon Hire, allows Cornwall College to offer and deliver courses to local contractors and employers who require their employees to train for scaffolding qualifications, which last for five years.
John Stagg, head of the technology faculty at Cornwall College Camborne, said: “It’s essential that our lecturers train with and utilise the latest equipment available on a day to day basis, so that our students benefit from the most up to date industry knowledge. Brandon Hire was keen to get involved with this project and we’re very grateful for their help and support.”
