MEWP Scissor Lift/Genie Boom
1 Day MEWP Training Course
This RTITB accredited course is designed to teach participants the skills and knowledge required to operate a MEWP safely and efficiently.
Delegates undergo both a theory exam and practical assessment before being RTITB certificated to use the machine. This provides companies with the peace of mind that their staff have trained to RTITBs nationally recognised standard.
Employers have a duty of care to its staff to refresh its MEWP operators on a regular basis. This consistent training can help maintain vehicle sympathy as well as reaffirming the skills already attained from initial training.
