A basic scaffold ticket is required to erect any modular system where a person or object could fall more than 4.0 metres.

A basic scaffolding ticket enables a person to erect, alter and dismantle any modular or prefabricated scaffold system, e.g. aluminium mobiles, steel modular, Kwikstage and Cuplock.

The maximum height a scaffolder with a Basic Ticket may build a modular scaffold would be the maximum height as specified by the manufacturer of the particular scaffold being used.
