Boom Type Elevating Work Platform (EWP)
At AAA Training as well as training, we also provide assessment and licensing for all load shifting equipment we can provide everything that you or your employees need to become licensed at one convenient location.
A boom-type elevating work platform (EWP) means, a powered telescoping device, hinged device or articulated device or any combination of these used to support a platform on which personnel, equipment and materials may be elevated to perform work and which has a boom length of 11 meters or more.
Licenses to operate a EWP are issued under Work Cover NSW guidelines and criteria.
The course provides a pathway to obtain an Elevated Work Platform license. Students must meet the following criteria in order to obtain a EWP operator license:
• Participation in course theory and practical demonstration delivered
• Theory component will include completion of exam, discussion, questioning.
• Observation will include operation of the EWP, in a variety of settings, machine operations meeting OH&S and Work Cover NSW standards.
Training and theory can be delivered off-the-job at the AAA Training center, or on site at your premises. Training delivery combines face-to-face trainer led theory classes and practical sessions
Involving small group and individual activities.
Candidates are provided with a Work Cover training instrument manual that covers all parts of the course. Additional material will be made available during training sessions if required.

At AAA Training we strongly believe that for the best outcome for both the employer and the employee it is necessary is to have as much 1:1 student and trainer and machine time as possible to achieve a safer and a more competent operator and that is why we only train in small groups of no more than 5 students per trainer.
Here at AAA Training we know that when you call that you need your licence as soon as possible and we pride ourselves on helping you to achieve that goal when you need it.
