HSMA - 8 Hour Supported Scaffold Installer and Remover Refresher


This scaffold training course is intended for individuals looking to renew their expired or soon to expire 32-Hour Supported Scaffold Installer and Remover ID Card used in the supervision and use of supported scaffolds in NYC.


Otherwise known as 8 hour pipe scaffold erector course, this course is designed to review what was learned during the 32 hour supported scaffold installer/remover course as well as discuss changes and updates to New York City DOB and OSHA policies, and supported scaffold standards. Classroom time often gives students a chance to share job site experiences and opinions about new supported scaffold solutions and systems.
