Who Should Attend?

Those working for rental companies who need to determine which type of MEWP a client should rent/hire from them for the work required. Those working in any industry, such as supervisors, who wish to gain the confidence and knowledge required to make their own decision about which kind of MEWP to rent/hire for the work required.

Safety professionals who need to assess whether or not the MEWP being used is the best selection for the task. N.B. all candidates must hold a valid PAL Card for operator training or a MEWPs for Managers qualification.


Selecting a Mobile Elevating Work Platform (MEWP) can be complex and challenging. Being confident and sufficiently knowledgeable to select the correct MEWP for the job directly reduces risk.
