  4. Mobile Elevating Work Platform Webinar [Hybrid Training]

Delivered by webinar and accessible from anywhere in New Zealand, this course helps attendees to understand the legal obligations, pre-check requirements and skills needed to safely operate a Mobile Elevating Work Platform. 

This webinar ensures you understand the relevant guidelines, regulations and Best Practice Guidelines to safely assess and operate a MEWP. It builds the foundation to ensure the attendee can competently complete the practical exercises at a later date.

This webinar covers theory only. Due to the requirements of the associated unit standard, attendees will not be awarded a unit standard until they have completed an accompanying practical session. Hybrid training allows the attendee more control over the time required to achieve the unit standard by allowing them to break up the theory and practical elements. The practical component must be booked within 12 months of completing the theoretical component, and the cost indicated here covers both elements of the training.

In accordance with the requirements to maintain Consent to Assess for the unit standards taught on this course, Safety ‘n Action had this course pre moderated and approved by our standard setting body, The Skills Organisation.

Only two machine combinations can be trained in one day. You will need to specify which combination you require on booking. The machine options are as follows:
