The course covers both a theoretical as well as a practical portion. Firstly, we will start with the theory which is then followed by a short test and then the practical. During the practical we do provided harness and lanyards however, if you do have your own we encourage that you bring them and we can also properly fit them to you. Also, we do have harness and lanyards available for purchase if you need. Upon successful completion of the course you will receive your Working at Heights certification.
