This course is required for employees who operate aerial lifts during their work. The training consists of two parts – an online module and a document that contains supplemental material specific to Penn State. In addition, your supervisor must provide you with hands-on training and a hands-on evaluation (driving test). Every three years you must have your driving skills re-evaluated.
- If the equipment has a boom (extends the platform outward horizontally from the base of the machine) then you must complete Aerial Lift / Boom Types of Lifts course.
- If the equipment only lifts the platform vertically (straight up and down) then you must complete the Scissor Lift / Single Person Types of Lifts course.
- If you operate both types of equipment then you must complete both courses.
