SEIRS Diploma Course - Part 2

This two-day intensive course is Part 2 of the SEIRS Diploma process. At the end of the training successful delegates should have the necessary information and knowledge of the safety procedures and legislation involved in the construction of pallet racking storage equipment to allow them to work safely on sites.

Through a mixture of classroom-based theory and a significant practical element, day one will teach delegates how to safely and correctly install and dismantle pallet racking. As part of a small team-based assessment, day two will require delegates to erect and dismantle the storage equipment using mechanically assisted build methods, together with a small amount of manual application.

Delegates will be assessed throughout day two of the course and on successful completion of the assessment will be awarded a full SEIRS card which is valid for 3 years.
