Aerial platform training will provide participants a general understanding of the safe and efficient operation of a Power Operated Mobile Elevated Aerial Work Platform. Aerial platform training will teach trainees how to identify specific health and safety hazards associated with operating these manlifts / boom lifts. Also known as scissor lift training, skyjacks and cherry pickers.
If your company does elevated aerial work in the industries such as window washing, tree cutting, painting at heights etc., you will require aerial lift training for your lifting device. In most cases you will also require fall protection safety training. We can combine fall arrest training with aerial lift certification at the time of booking.
