Course Summary


Our two day training course is for people who have minimal or no EWP operating experience.

It’s an intensive, hands-on training course, with the majority of the time spent operating the equipment.

A strong theoretical and calculations component is also included that focuses on safe operating procedures.

What Will You Gain?

You will gain an understanding of these five critical aspects to becoming a successful EWP driver/operator:

  • Pre-operational inspection
  • Familiarisation of the EWP
  • Handling characteristics
  • Manoeuvring of the EWP
  • Shutdown and secure EWP


The Training will be delivered by an experienced and qualified trainer, face to face.

The training follows a specifically prepared course session plan and utilises materials such as participant guides, review questions, and practical demonstration and tasks.


Mandated national assessment tools are used and include Theory, Calculations and Practical Assessments.
