Aerial Work Platforms
Please Note: To better serve you, our Powered Mobile Equipment curriculum is being redeveloped into a Blended Learning Model which will combine online training with on-location operator evaluations. This transition requires a temporary interruption of the delivery of our Power Mobile Equipment Operator and Trainer level courses. We apologize for any inconvenience to you and your organization. When a confirmed date for the new program is available, we will send out an alert to our email subscribers. Thank you for your patience.
Aerial work platforms are used frequently in the construction industry and for a variety of maintenance applications. The operation of any aerial work platform is subject to certain hazards that can only be protected against by having competent workers trained in its intended use, safe operation, maintenance, and service.
In this course students will learn the specific details to operating an aerial work platform in a safe manner and in accordance with all laws and regulations. There will also be a focus on proper fall protection when operating the machine.
- Legislation and regulation of aerial work platforms
- Types of aerial work platforms
- Major part of an aerial work platform
- Aerial work platform operating features
- Capacities, capabilities, specifications of the machine
- Inspecting an aerial working platform

Legislation requires that students receive a minimum 16 hours of training and we will work with you to meet that requirement in either a 1 or 2 day course.
Students are required to complete the Fall Protection course before they are able to operate an Aerial Work Platform.
