Elevating work platforms

When it comes to training for EWPs the scene is quite confusing. Some common misconceptions are:

  1.  A HRW License – Class WP allows you to operate a Scissor Lift. No it doesn’t. The mode of operation for the two machines is quite different and requires different training. This Course is for the tradesperson or worker who wants operates a Scissor Lift in the workplace to provide the ability to work at heights.
  2.  You need a Yellow Card to operate a Scissor Lift. No you don’t. A Yellow Card is an industry issued card and not a nationally recognised unit of competence. There is no legal requirement to hold a Yellow Card.
  3. This training is restricted to operating a Scissor Lift up to 11mtrs. No it isn’t – there is no height restriction on the operation of a Scissor Lift covered in this training.

Confused? Give us a call to make sure you are enrolling in the Course that suits your work needs.

Learn skills to operate any self-propelled (or towable) EWP including Scissor Lifts, Vertical Lifts, Truck or Trailer mounted lifts.

This Course does not result in a HRW Licence to operate a boom-type elevating work platform (boom length 11 metres or more) or a Yellow Card.
