Vehicle Mounted Aerial Lift Training Overview

Vehicle mounted aerial lifts are mounted on trucks or vans and are often referred to as bucket trucks, cherry pickers or, in some areas, boom trucks. They are most commonly used along public roads and highways by public works and road maintenance crews or utility companies. Vehicle mounted aerial lifts have made it safer and easier to lift personnel and their tools to great heights. If used correctly, this equipment provides quick and safe access to work areas that at one time could only be reached from scaffolding or a crane's man basket.

In this online course, you will learn about the set-up and safe operation of vehicle mounted aerial lifts. More specifically, you will be introduced to aerial lifts and common ways that they are used. This course will also cover the anatomy of the equipment, the importance of pre-shift inspections, stability and safe operation principles, and how to avoid common hazards associated with aerial lift operation. By the end of this course, you should have information that will increase your knowledge and help to make you a better operator.
