Equipment Information


MEWP training courses teach proper operation of mobile elevating work platforms. Successful candidates qualify to operate the platform for temporary work access to areas, normally at height, learning basic equipment mechanics, stability principles and advanced maneuvering.

Mobile elevating work platforms can provide features to the workman such as power supply for tools; any specific requirements can be factored into MEWP courses. Guidance to candidates on specialist personal protective equipment (PPE) such as fall arrest harnesses, instruction on the use of remote controls in case of emergency and general protocol for passengers’ and operators to ensure safety to all employees.

MEWPs can present a high risk of destabilising if operated incorrectly, a risk dramatically reduced by professional training in the use of MEWPs aka aerial work platforms (AWP).

MEWP courses can be delivered on the majority mobile elevating work platforms. MEWP types such as the Scissor Lift or Cherry Picker get their name from the appearance or style of mechanism that elevates the work platform. Our work-based training programme tailors MEWP training to your equipment requirements to guarantee quality and relevance of training to your company.

Successful candidates receive a MEWP operator licence in the form of an operator certificate and photo ID card.
