Understand the legal obligations, pre-check requirements and skills needed to safely operate a Mobile Elevated Platform.

Elevated Work Platform (EWP) Training 

NZQA 23966 | 23960 | 23961 | 23962 | 23963 | 23964

Employers are responsible to ensure that all employee's working on MEWPs must be adequately trained and can demonstrate their competency before using any equipment.

The only means identified as demonstrated competency is through completing nationally recognised Elevated Work Platforms’ NZQA unit standards.

Key Learning Objectives:

  • Demonstrating knowledge of types of EWPs, their safety features, and suitability for purpose (range: scissor lift, truck mounted, self-propelled boom lift, trailer mounted, vertical lift).
  • Demonstrating knowledge of legislative requirements in relation to Code of Practice and the use of EWPs.
  • Assessing the worksite and preparing to use a truck-mounted mounted EWP.
  • Carrying out operations in a workplace environment, and shutting down, and reporting faults, the truck-mounted mounted EWP.
  • Assessing the worksite, and preparing to use a self-propelled boom lift EWP.
  • Carrying out operations in a workplace environment, shutting down and reporting faults the self-propelled boom lift EWP.
  • Assessing the worksite, and preparing to use a trailer-mounted EWP.
  • Carrying out operations in a workplace environment, reporting faults, and shutting down the trailer mounted EWP.
  • Assessing the worksite, preparing and operating a vertical lift elevating work platform (EWP).
  • Carrying out operations in a workplace environment, reporting faults, and shutting down the vertical lift EWP.

EWP Refresher Training

  • Length: 4 hours 
  • Price: $200 + GST per trainee - (EWP Theory + Scissor Lift + Boom Lift)
  • Or $190 + GST per trainee (EWP Theory + Scissor Lift or EWP Theory + Boom Lift)

The criteria for refresher courses remains the same as previously, the learner must already hold the Unit Standards they are refreshing.

Refresher training is not a legal requirement; however, it is strongly recommended to ensure compliance with the Health & Safety Legislation and its industry "good practice" guidelines.

It is generally seen as good work practice that trainees refresh these unit standards every 3 years.  Duration of this course is 4 hours and will cover the unit Standards and a practical exercise to reinforce the trainee's knowledge on Operating the EWP equipment correctly.  (The practical exercise can be replaced with our Workplace verifier process - This process is simple; a workplace verifier confirms the competency of the learner performing the tasks being refreshed by completing our Attestation form).
