Working at Heights (Including Ladders)
Our courses range from providing classroom based learning to practical demonstrations and assessment. Delegates learn about the principles and equipment involved in work at height systems and the process of a safe and systematic approach to working at height operations. Courses are aimed to benefit managers, supervisors, scaffolds, riggers and work teams involved with anything electrical or mechanical where their job entails them to work at height.
Our instructors have many years of practical on-the-job experience across many industries and provide courses in compliance with Working at Height Regulations 2005.
Do You Comply With The Work At Height Regulations?
This Work at Height Training Course ensures employees comply with the Work at Height Regulations 2005, which state that all employees must receive a qualification to ‘prove ability and competence’.
The Work at Height Regulations 2005 came into force on 6 April 2005. These Regulations replace all earlier regulations about working at height, and implement the European Council Directive 2001/45/EC which specifies minimum safety and health requirements for the use of equipment for work at height.
The main duties under the Work at Height Regulations 2005 are:
- All work at height is to be properly planned and organized.
- The risks of working at height must be assessed to ensure appropriate work equipment is selected and used.
- Employers must ensure that all their workers are trained and competent before beginning any work at height and safe systems of work must be in place.
- Employees must follow any safety training and instructions given to them.
Ladder training courses Included
All users of ladders, step ladders and step stools should have appropriate training in their safe assembly, alteration, dismantling and relocation. The Ladder Association is the UK’s industry standard for ladder training. Ladder courses can take place on your own premises or at one of our training centre in Basingstoke.
1 Day – Working at Heights (Including Ladders) with a maximum of 6 delegates per course.
Each course delegate will be given a theoretical test (multi-choice format) to assess their job related safety knowledge and a certificate of basic training will be awarded to successful candidates.

“At Guest Express Transport we have 28 members of staff with approx. 4 that actually hold a national forklift certificate and the rest have a very good knowledge of fork truck driving. I decided to put one member through the instructors course with the view to have all staff members trained to the same level and a level that we as a company are satisfied with. I ended up doing the course myself and I am actually glad I did as it really does highlight the bad habits we all pick up over the years and dangers we put ourselves through every day without even realising!! But fortunately Zoe came in and changed all that within 5 days. I would recommend Ace Trainers for this as they were by far the best on price (I had 4 other quotes as a comparison) and like Guest Express Transport are a family run business and appreciate your business and did go the extra mile to make sure we / I was satisfied. I have now also booked our next 5 years of drivers CPC training, again at a very competitive price and will continue our relationship whenever I need professional people to train my staff to a professional level” In House Instructors Course – 07/01/2013
Thank you very much for the training session Lin! It was great and we will be in contact for any more of our future needs
Hi , just a quick message to say that today we had Ryan take a course for 3 of our staff on counterbalance forklifts. The feedback I have received is that the course was delivered very professionally and a lot of new information was shared . Our on site training facilities were used to deliver the theory test which Ryan will now be familiar with . I would like to say we were impressed by Ryan and any further training we require within the Millcroft group we will contact you for a quote .
The service was excellent from point of contact all the way through to the actual training itself We will be using Ace Trainers again
Very happy with the fork lift training delivered on site. I’d happily recommend Ace Trainers. Kevin Holden
The course was tailored to our needs which was fantastic because we had one complete beginner, one person with a little experience and one person who just need a refresher. Even with these very different levels of experience the candidates found the course easy to understand. All candidates passed the course and the course which was fantastic. The tutors were friendly and very knowledgeable. We would definitely recommend this course and it was excellent value for money!
Thanks to Ace Trainers we were booked onto a course with very little notice (thanks to a cancellation) at a very competitive price. The level of instruction was very thorough and our novice fork truck driver was very comfortable with the training. All round; extremely pleased with the service provided.
With being made redundant and with warehouse skills but not fork lift qualified, I attended a counter balance and reach fork lift truck operator course with Ace trainers at their training centre in Basingstoke. The instructors there, male and female were impressive and very professional. They are well knowledgeable in all subjects relating to fork lifting including Health and Safety regulations. Armed with my new/previous skills and knowledge gained from Acetrainers, I have landed a brilliant and dare I say, well paid warehouse management job.Thanks Mike and your instructors, you are the best. PS Will be sending my guys to you for training when they are due for renewal. George Rater
Thanks Mike for the professional and constructive way you have organised both our management and drivers! The information and instruction you have supplied regarding our safety, procedures and responsibilities now ensures we are compliant and more efficient. We look forward to working with in the future.
