Description and goal of the training course

In order to work with a mobile elevating work platform, you must obviously be completely familiar with its functions and operation. Furthermore, it is important to be aware of possible risks and hazards. After this training course, you will know which tasks you can perform safely using mobile elevating work platforms and be capable of limiting the risks associated with these tasks to a minimum.

This training also contributes to increasing the efficiency and reducing the number of machine malfunctions, and improves the safety awareness of the participants.


The training course consists of a theoretical and practical part. You put the theoretical knowledge you learn into practice immediately. This gives the training course an interactive character.
The training course ends with a (practical) proficiency test. Our experienced and professional trainers make sure that you are well prepared for the proficiency test.
