The primary reason for erecting a scaffold is to support a working platform. Most construction work involves working at heights which cannot easily or safely be reached from the ground or part of the building. By law, an employer must provide a safe working platform and a safe convenient means of access. No scaffold should be erected, altered, or dismantled except under the supervision of a competent and experienced person, and as far as possible, by experienced scaffolders. Scaffolds erected or altered by people who have no knowledge or experience are liable to be dangerous and unsafe.
In order to apply for the above noted courses, an applicant must be a high school graduate or equivalent.

The New Brunswick Post-Secondary Opportunities Fund was established to match monies institutions raise for need-based bursaries. The $1M per year provincial contribution is used to encourage donations from the private sector to create endowment funds to provide scholarships and bursaries for New Brunswick students in financial need who attend public universities and community colleges in New Brunswick. With donations of $2M from the private sector this means a potential of $3M will be added each year to the endowment funds.
