Wallet Card Certification (upon successful completion)
The program takes part in a classroom for theory learning but participation in the field is vital to successful completion. Participants are required to bring all site required PPE including :
- Steel toed work boots
- High visibility vest
- Hard hat (if required)
- Any other PPE required by the workplace
- Harnesses are provided but if participants are more comfortable using / bringing their own, they are encouraged to do so.
NOTE: Because previous training is hard to judge from one training company to another, re-certification courses will only be made available to individuals able to present proof of previous training from Clockwork Safety & Equipment Training or another widely credible source. In-house training at a previous employer will NOT suffice.
