Scissor lifts are a versatile type of aerial lift that can be used for a variety of tasks. They are often used in construction and industrial applications, as well as for maintenance and repair work. Scissor lifts typically have a large platform that can accommodate multiple workers or a large amount of equipment. The platform is raised and lowered using hydraulic cylinders, which give the lift its distinctive “scissor” shape.

This course consists of an instructor led training room presentation, written assessment, practical training and assessment.
