Worker using a truck mounted MEWP

Truck-Mounted MEWP Training

Truck-mounted MEWPs (Mobile Elevated Work Platforms) are widely utilized by city maintenance crews and utility companies. Also known as bucket trucks, boom trucks, or cherry pickers, these units get workers and their tools where they need to be. If used correctly, a truck-mounted MEWP provides safe and fast access to difficult areas. On the other hand, if the operator is not trained in proper boom truck operation, they could pose several risks to themselves and others.

That’s why Leavitt Machinery offers a comprehensive online boom truck training course. The contents of this course instruct participants in safe set-up and operation of truck-mounted MEWPs. Specifically, the content of this truck-mounted MEWP training covers boom truck components, pre-shift inspections, stability, safe operation, and common hazards. By the end of this online boom truck training, operators will have the knowledge they need to stay safe.
