Operators trained to work on boom lifts at a site

Boom Lift Training

Boom lifts (formally known as MEWPs) are a popular choice for many applications and job sites for aerial access. This is due to their impressive maneuvering abilities and long reach capabilities. Though they appear easy to use, many considerations go into every move and lift. Operators must be trained in safe and efficient practices to reduce the risk of incidents and equipment damage. That’s why Leavitt Machinery offers an in-depth boom lift training course for all levels of operators. This boom lift certification course gives operators the knowledge and experience they need to stay safe on the job.

The content of this boom lift training is delivered via multimedia presentations, interactive discussions, and live demonstrations. This knowledge is then reinforced via written testing and practical hands-on experience. By completing this course, operators will have a thorough understanding of safety standards, safe operating techniques, and maintenance procedures.
