Mobile Elevated Work Platform (MEWP) Lantra ITA

This course will equip candidates with the knowledge and confidence to operate a mobile elevated work platform (MEWP) safely, protecting both themselves and others. There are a range of certificate options depending on needs, including scissor lifts, vertical towers, articulating boom lifts, telescopic boom lifts, spider lifts, vehicle mounted, static, or trailed. 

When undertaking MEWP training at Morton Park candidates will complete training on a trailed, telescopic boom lift (Niftylift 120T), but clients are welcome to provide their own MEWP if preferred.
