Scissor, Boom, Vertical


The Scissor and Boom Lift course is a great way to get competent on two of the most common types of EWPs, at an affordable price. Being versatile is key to you or your staff’s skillset, so why not have multiple machines on your license to be ahead of the competition?

The Vertical Lift is a great choice if you need a small, lightweight machine to achieve your task. Using their light weight and small footprint as an advantage, they are the perfect machine for indoor jobs requiring access in narrow spaces.

Our assessors pass on their EWP experience and knowledge of the machines with the aim to give you confidence and practical, real world, expertise allowing you or your staff to complete their job safely.

You will receive the following Unit Standards on your NZQA Record of Achievement and on your license:

23966 – Describe types of EWP, and legislative requirements for their use (Theory) - This must be completed for all new card holders

23960 – Assess the worksite, prepare and operate a scissor lift EWP (Practical)

23962 – Assess the worksite, prepare and operate a self-propelled boom lift EWP (Practical)

23964 – Assess the worksite, prepare and operate a vertical lift EWP (Practical)

The one-day training course is designed to deliver essential safety and compliance information. Attendees will gain theoretical knowledge and practical skills in:

  • Health and Safety Legislative Requirements
  • Types of Elevated Work Platforms (EWP’s)
  • EWP Compliance Requirements
  • Hazard identification, risk assessment and controls
  • Fall arrest harness inspection, fitting and use
  • Conduct pre and post operational checks
  • Safe Operation of EWP
  • Emergency procedures, Rescue Plans
  • Theory & Practical assessments, observation and demonstration.

Upon successful completion of the course, we take care of the rest! Your Unit Standards will be sent to The Skills Organisation who will place these on your NZQA Record of Achievement. You will then receive a Silvercard EWP Operator ID License as proof of training and competency. 

In a hurry to get proof of competency? Not a problem, we can email you a “temporary” Silvercard License which can be used when operating machinery until you receive the official photo ID license.
