Mobile Elevating Work Platforms

This course is taught exclusively by our Authorized Training Providers.

As the operator of a mobile elevating work platform (MEWP), you have sole responsibility for carrying out tasks safely and efficiently. Establishing good habits and maintaining a consistent, focused approach to safe operations of the MEWP are critical. Through a combination of theory and practical application, this course provides basic operator training for working with Type 3, Group B MEWPs with a focus on managing hazards and selecting, inspecting, and operating a MEWP.

While this basic course can be used as part of a worker's competency assessment, the employer must designate a worker as a "competent person" based on specific tasks assigned
