Knot Tying - Bends & Hitches

Just like when you learnt to tie your shoelaces when you were young, knot tying is a skill that requires considerable practice in varying conditions and applications.

Learning to tie bends and hitches for your scaffold licence takes time and practice but once you have learnt these skills, they will be useful in many more areas than just scaffolding, like: boating, camping, caving, outdoors, rigging, rock climbing, sailing, scouting – just to name a few.

Here is a selection of youtube videos to help you learn the bends and hitches needed to pass your scaffold licence. Search for other videos if needed.
