Course overview.

Formwork and Falsework Introductory Course

The OHOB Training Academy 5-day Formwork and Falsework Introductory Course is a bespoke industry accredited training programme, designed to help any new entrants and existing operatives up-skill and transform their current skillset. For those new to the sector, you will be guided through an introductory programme, enabling you to take the first step towards a future skilled position and a trade qualification. For existing workers, often mainly in labourer roles stuck in lower paid positions and either not afforded an opportunity to develop, or those who do not believe they have the support and knowledge to undertake more skilled operations, this introductory course will enable you to fulfil your full potential.

Once you have completed this introductory course and learnt how to follow the correct site procedures, you will feel confident, energised and inspired, because you now have the capability to succeed in the workplace coupled with the necessary theory, practical knowledge and competency training you need to do the job correctly.

The quality of tuition and practical experience is unrivalled and uses the latest and top of the range equipment often provided by industry partners sponsoring our programmes.

For those successful candidates, new entrants, career chargers or those up-skilling, you will thereafter either directly be offered a job outcome or be better placed to secure a role for one of the largest groundworks and civil engineering contractors in the UK.

Join us today at OHOB Training Academy and kickstart your career now.
