SAEMA is delighted to announce it has been shortlisted for the Best Innovation by an Association in the Association Excellence Awards.
The Association Excellence Awards salute, celebrate and encourage the vital work that associations, trade bodies, professional organisations and chartered institutes do for and on behalf of their members to ensure their voices are heard and their causes are championed.
SAEMA has been recognised for its User Training, which was launched on 18th January 2021. It is a new and unique way for those who work at height, operating suspended access equipment, to be assessed on their technical understanding of the processes and equipment involved.
Part 1 of SAEMA User Training is taken remotely, at the user’s convenience, at saema.org.
Upon passing Part 1 of the test, a certificate is sent to the user as proof of their accreditation. The user is then also issued with a virtual card ,which is stored on their smartphone and can be checked by Duty Holders in real time when users arrive on site for Part 2 Training.
The cost for accessing SAEMA’s e-learning suite of 10 videos, for completing the innovative multiple choice test system and for producing and sending a certificate of competence, is just £75.00 per person.
The online training platform continues to grow in popularity. By May 2022, the 750th virtual card was issued – less than 16 months after its launch in January 2021.
The 2022 Association Excellence Awards ceremony will take place on 14 October 2022 at the Kia Oval.
