Although Aerial Work Platforms are versatile, operators must be able to assess hazards continuously while operating their aerial work platforms. Operators must be trained not only in the safe operation of the equipment, but also the hazards specific to the equipment and the environment. Our course is designed to provide operators with the knowledge and skill to be able to operate the equipment safety and efficiently. Additionally, this course includes a full module on the use of fall protection equipment in conjunction with use of aerial work platforms.
