Our Aerial Boom Lift Re-certification course will enhance the skills of a previously certified boom lift operator. It reviews the information originally provided and retests to ensure understanding. A written test and practical evaluation are administered during which a passing score of 70% is required. After completing the written test, operators must then demonstrate proficiency in operation via a qualified instructor’s written evaluation using industry standards.
The training is not make or model specific but covers characteristics common to JLG, Genie, Snorkel, Skyjack and others. Renewal of operator certification every three years per OSHA 1910.178 is required. Please check your local regulations for any variances to this rule.
