vertical lift training course sydney

Yellow Card and EWPA Licence Courses in Sydney. 

The Vertical Lift (sometimes referred to as a man-lift) operates in much the same way as a Scissor Lift. The differences being the lifting mechanism and generally, they are smaller and lighter than scissor lifts, making them ideal for indoor use. They are ideal for multi-story fit-outs as they can safely fit in most passenger elevators and are very maneuverable. Successful completion of the Vertical Lift module enables trainees to operate vertical lifts with no height restrictions. This includes mast and push-around models.

About Training for Higher EWPA Courses

Training For Higher has been preparing trainees to operate EWP’s safely for over 7 years.

Head trainer, Phil Rutter, has been in the EWP industry for over 13 years. In that time he has worked for EWP Manufacturers, Access Hire Yards and EWP Training Companies. Phil has also previously held the position of Secretary of the Elevating Work Platforms Association NSW. To date, Phil has trained 3000+ workers across a broad range of industries. Exposure to such a broad range of EWP related industries has equipped Phil with the knowledge required to deliver a course that is both informative and entertaining. He is also noted for his patience and understanding to trainees who have English as a second language.

Training for Higher courses are held at Australian Boom and Scissors or can be conducted at the client’s site if required.  Our training courses are informal and consistently receive positive feedback from participants.

We also understand that sometimes training is required urgently to get on to a site. We are therefore flexible enough to be able to take next day bookings after hours if required.
