Scissor Lift Operator Training

Scissor Lift Operator Training


This full day Scissor Lift Training Session is designed to give operators the tools they need to stay safe and productive.  This session is open to novice and experienced operators as well as operators requiring their re-certification. 


This training session will consist of:  

Classroom Theory

Written Theory Exam 

The written test will be based on the concepts covered in the operator’s reference manuals. The test consists of twenty (20) multiple choice type questions. These tests are graded and returned to the trainees and then reviewed to ensure understanding. A minimum score of 70% is required to pass this phase of the program. 


Practical Experience 

The hands-on portion of the program is where the trainees are shown the pre-use inspection, safe operating procedures and parking/shut-down procedures and then given the opportunity to practice under the helpful eye of the program instructor.
