Mobile Elevating Work Platform Operator
- Length: 1 Day
- Equipment: Training will be on-site at your location with your equipment
- Regulations: Meets applicable OSHA & ANSI/ASME standards (see below)
Improper use of Mobile Elevating Work Platforms (commonly known as Aerial Work Platform) can topple the machine, injure the operator, damage equipment, and endanger others nearby. Operation of any mobile elevated work platform should always be restricted only to those who are qualified, competent, and designated as Mobile Elevated Work Platform Operators by the employer. In order to be qualified, employers should insist that operators have gone through training in the operation and the type of aerial work platform they will be operating and have successfully completed a written and practical examination.
CICB’s Mobile Elevating Work Platform course is just one-day and is similar to our bucket truck course. Both devices are used for lifting personnel into areas where they can’t reach. The main difference between bucket trucks and mobile elevating cranes is that bucket trucks can be driven to their location, while mobile elevating work platforms must be loaded on a trailer and then driven to the location.
All personnel attending this one-day program will gain significant and useful skills and will leave with a stronger understanding and appreciation of the requirements and responsibilities of mobile elevated work platform operators. Specific types of platforms can be made available upon request for training and practical examinations.

Our site has been using CICB for a number of years to train and maintain certification for our crane operators. They exhibit an extensive background in the crane industry and their approach to training is very thorough and comprehensive. CICB’s professional instructors are highly dedicated and motivate everyone in the class to strive for excellence. The material is well-organized and the training is presented in a clear and concise manner. The classroom instruction and actual hands-on training go beyond our expectations. Our employees leave the class with a better understanding of crane operation, their capabilities, and job safety.”
This class was one of the best I have ever coordinated for our employees! Jason was, by far, the best instructor I have ever seen present an extremely technical course. His personality was perfect for the audience and made him very relatable. His technical proficiency was exemplary! He is completely capable of and, for the most part, did teach the entire class without referring to the slides or reference material. He also went way above and beyond in his commitment to ensuring the students not only learned but retained the material and stayed late into each evening to assist those requiring additional assistance. The employees could not say enough great things about Jason's skills and commitment to learning. We now have 10 employees trained to operate our cranes and, even though the majority of them do not work together, a group of employees that overcame some adversity and became a cohesive team. They are begging me to bring the CICB back!”
The Instructor Larry Kime is absolutely one of the best instructors I have ever had, and I have a degree in mechanical engineering. Larry’s knowledge both written and practical is current and accessible. I would recommend Larry to a new beginner or someone that has been in the lifting industry their whole career
