About this course
Mobile Elevated Work Platform (MEWP) training would be delivered to you on your own site; you would need to supply the machine/equipment and an area to conduct training. Basic training must be conducted off the job, however during later stages of the training some work tasks may be able to be incorporated once candidates have reached an acceptable standard of safe operation.
