Aerial Lift Training 

75 Minutes 


Aerial lifting devices are typically used throughout construction, industry, and warehousing.  However, the versatility and safety factors incorporated into these devices allow them to be utilized in almost any environment.


Our Aerial Lift Training Program will focus on the safe operation of self propelled elevated work platforms and self propelled boom supported elevated work platforms.  Once the online course has been successfully completed, a certificate will be printed and must be signed in the space provided by a competent individual verifying that a hands-on practical evaluation has been completed within your facility.



What is Aerial Lift?


Aerial lift devices are often referred to by different names: Aerial Work Platforms, Scissor Lifts, Articulating Boom Lifts, Genie Lifts, and Zoom Booms.



Who needs Aerial Lift Training in Canada?


Any person who uses these devices should receive Aerial Lift Training in order to be designated as a competent person.  Every worker operating an aerial lifting device must undergo training in compliance with CSA 354.2-01 Self Propelled Work Platforms. Many provinces also require that training on the theory of operating these devices be complemented by practical training by an instructor.



Will trainees require a practical test as well as the theory provided by your course?


The LDCA recommends (and most provinces insist) that operators receive a practical test carried out by a competent person following the course. Unfortunately, the regulations are not specific about the required qualifications of those deemed to be ‘competent’.  CSA standards require that only qualified persons who have been trained regarding the inspection, operation, and application of an aerial platform, including the recognition and avoidance of hazards associated with the operation, shall operate an aerial platform.



Modules include: Hazard Identification, Devices and Operating Controls, Pre Operational Checks, Platform Positioning and Park Position.
