Every new person in the scaffolding environment should proceed with the mandatory registration in SVWOH.
How this registration proceeds:

  • payment of €85 ex. BTW

  • after completing the questions, you are a scaffolder assistant

According to SVWOH and DNV regulations, you should undergo a short training for a scaffolder assistant. Unfortunately, no company provides such training. Bonapi is the only institute to organize a short training for a scaffolder assistant.
After registration, you are required to take the training and exam for a basic scaffolder (steigerbouwer A – basic) as soon as possible.
After receiving the basic scaffolder certificate, you are required to gain at least 1.5 years of experience to undergo training for Advanced scaffolder (steigerbouwer B – Advance).
