My main concern was finding an affordable aerial/scissor lift course that was updated with all the new standards. These guys made it easy and did not disappoint!

Toyota’s number one priority is safety. Managing a manufacturing campus of 10,000 employees, OSHA compliance is something we take very seriously. MEWP equipment safety is paramount, therefore we mandate operators be competent and certified.

Aerial Work Platforms have been renamed and are now called MEWP which is the acronym that stands for Mobile Elevating Work Platforms. In short, they are machines that elevate workers without the use of scaffolding.

The average time for completion is 1 hour for operators with no previous aerial lift experience. Operators that are familiar with the machinery typically complete the course in under 45 minutes.

In order to start the process to become a scissor/aerial/boom lift certified: 

  • You must legally be allowed to work in the country where you are employed. That means being a citizen, a permanent resident or a temporary resident with an applicable work visa. 

The requirements to complete certification include: 

  • Completing a formal instructional & educational training class that meets OSHA  standards 
  • Completing a formal evaluation (online or in a classroom) 
  • Presenting the written records of certification to a future or current employer for hands on evaluation, sign-off & approval 

This course satisfies the requirements mandated through the Occupational Safety Health Administration, and provides the documentation needed to provide to an employer.

Mandatory adoption of the new standards is June 1, 2020

There are several different machines that are considered MEWPs or Aerial Lifts. Some of the most common are as follows:

  • Scissor lifts
  • Bucket trucks
  • Knuckle booms
  • Boom lifts
  • Boom trucks
  • Telehandlers
Upon completing the online course and passing the exam you will have immediate access to your certification.
