Aerial Work Platform Classes

Aerial work platform training is designed to provide general information to help the participant develop safe work practices while operating personnel lifts, scissor lifts, and boom lifts. This class certifies operators of lifts from all manufacturers. It is a full-day or half-day class that can be added to any of the other classes offered by Chicago Flyhouse or scheduled as stand-alone training. Hands-on inspection and function tests are a part of the class, so there needs to be a properly working lift on site and available for use.
