Aerial Work Platform Operator Training

Aerial work platforms are safer than ever, and 80% of all so-called mobile elevating work platform accidents today can be prevented by the operator, either during pre-operational inspection or during the actual operation of the unit. This fact brings training into a very critical focus, not as a byproduct of buying an aerial work platform, but as a critically important element of the process. Proper lift training takes time and effort, and should be considered a vital part of operating lift equipment safely.

 Custom Aerial Lift Training Programs

Aerial work platform operator training is customized for every customer. Tailoring training programs to customer needs, we develop, maintain and improve training programs for all our equipment, each brand and model specific. Ruthmann Reachmaster and its vendors have been members of IPAF (International Powered Access Federation) for decades and Ruthmann Reachmaster is an IPAF training center.

Aerial Lift Training – History of Success

20 years ago, then ReachMaster, Inc.  implemented mandatory operator training upon delivery of all ReachMaster Falcon compact aerial lifts. This training included registering the operators who received training over the years and issuing individual training certificates at a time where nobody else considered that important. Today Ruthmann Reachmaster continues to be on the forefront of training by offering a number of different training programs on all products we sell.

Operator Training Programs Include: 

  • Initial operator training at delivery of equipment
  • Refreshment courses & new employee training
  • Train-the-trainer courses
  • Load & go training (how to safely load, unload and transport our equipment)
  • IPAF Certified training (limited categories)
