With this training, learners will be able to gain a solid understanding of how they can identify hazards and safe use of a mobile elevated work platform (MEWP).

Elevated Work Platform Course

Theory and practical unit standards are available on the following Unit Standards:

  • Unit Standard 23966 - Mobile Elevated Work Platform Theory   
  • Unit Standard 23960 - Scissor Lift   
  • Unit Standard 23961 - Truck-Mounted Elevating Work Platform
  • Unit Standard 23962 - Boom Lift 
  • Unit Standard 23963 - Trailer-mounted Elevated Work Platform 
  • Unit Standard 23964 - Vertical Lift Elevating Work Platform   

Don’t put yourself at risk by not following correct safety precautions when using a MEWP.  

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Demonstrating knowledge of types of EWPs, their safety features, and suitability for purpose (range: scissor lift, truck mounted, self-propelled boom lift, trailer mounted, vertical lift).
  • Demonstrating knowledge of legislative requirements in relation to Code of Practice and the use of EWPs.
  • Assessing the worksite and preparing to use a truck-mounted mounted EWP.
  • Carrying out operations in a workplace environment, and shutting down, and reporting faults, the truck-mounted mounted EWP.
  • Assessing the worksite, and preparing to use a self-propelled boom lift EWP.
  • Carrying out operations in a workplace environment, shutting down and reporting faults the self-propelled boom lift EWP.
  • Assessing the worksite, and preparing to use a trailer-mounted EWP.
  • Carrying out operations in a workplace environment, reporting faults, and shutting down the trailer mounted EWP.
  • Assessing the worksite, preparing and operating a vertical lift elevating work platform (EWP).
  • Carrying out operations in a workplace environment, reporting faults, and shutting down the vertical lift EWP.

EWP Refresher Training

It is generally seen as good work practice that trainees refresh these unit standards every 3 years.  Duration of this course is 4 hours.  (The practical exercise can be replaced with our Workplace verifier process - This process is simple; a workplace verifier confirms the competency of the learner performing the tasks being refreshed by completing our Attestation form).
