Q2. Explain what the chords are in relation to prefabricated beams used for scaffolding?
Q3. When using prefabricated beams, which chord should be plan braced compression or tension?
Q4. How often are tie tubes required in the bottom chords of a pair of prefabricated scaffoldings beams?
Q5. Can ladder beams be fixed together and used as columns?
Q6. How can you improve the performance of prefabricated beams?
Q7. Is a single guardrail adequate protection for a scaffolder to work within, in relation to for protection?
Q8 what is the NASC code of practice covering fall protection for scaffolders working safely while erecting and dismantling scaffolding?
Q9. State what equipment is associated with fall arrest?
Q10. State the requirements that Anchorage points must fulfil?
Q11. How would you clean your harness?

once again a post that highlights the difference in training being dished out across britain. Im pretty sure most part 2's in scotland couldnt answer the first 6 questions.

and as a recent part 2 attendee , i can categorically state the answer to the first 6 questions is not found anywhere in the part 2 course

it seems in scotland we get cards for making up portfoilio's and getting them signed by anybody whereas in england people are actually being trained to a high level

im struggling to understand why these questions would be relevant for a part 2 , maybe someone in england can enlighten me on how the training works and the paperwork required for an NVQ in england , in scotland we give out SVQ'S for free.

Q6: give it to someone who gives a ****

If you are erecting these type of structure you should be able to describe how each of the part function to deem competence.
