Who is this course for?
This course is for anyone who is required to operate a scissor lift of any height. It provides suitable proof of training to allow for the operation of a scissor lift EWP.
The Yellow Card provides evidence that operators of specific types of elevated work platforms (in this case a Scissor Lift [SL]) have been trained in the safe use of that work platform.
About The Course
Our regularly scheduled courses are conducted at our Mayfield (MAP) premises starting at 9am. Typically we try to run a course every second week immediately after our EWP > 11m Licence course.
Participants will receive appropriate training in the safe operation of a scissor lift elevated work platform.
There are no pre-requisites to this course, however, participants should be 18 years or older. Operating restrictions apply for those under 18. For additional information, please see the Guidelines for EWPA Restricted Yellow Card for participants under 18 years.
The EWPA Operator Licence (Yellow Card) is an industry initiative helping to provide a safer working environment for all stake holders. It is a national program with a national database.
