There are several different types of scaffold. Each has it's own training and assembly procedures. My first training class was 40 hours, and I have taken another 6 training classes since then.
If you are only going to build 1 type of scaffold, then just take that training for that type. The first class will probably the scaffold users class, basic safety and teaches you how to identify possible safety problems.
