Elevating Work Platform Training - Waterloo

Includes Hands-On Scissor Lift Operation


Training Overview

This Mobile Elevated Work Platform course offers theory training and a practical evaluation required for operating an aerial lift in Ontario. Students will learn the theory necessary to operate a MEWP safely, then participate in a hands-on evaluation to demonstrate the safe operation and handling of a Skyjack SJ3219 scissor lift in accordance with CSA standards B354.7:17 and B354.8:17. Students will receive a certificate after successfully completing their practical evaluation in the afternoon, and will be free to leave the class at that time.
