Training is required for individuals that will operate aerial work platforms.  

Scissor lifts do not qualify technically as an Aerial Work Platform but by letter of interpretation are considered mobile scaffolding by OSHA.  However, since scissor lifts have many of the characteristics and hazards of an aerial lift, we at Stone Mountain still recommend this training for scissor lifts as well as articulating boom aerial lifts.

Course Outline:

  • Aerial Lift Introduction
  • Training requirements
  • Inspection and Maintenance requirements
  • Aerial lift operations
  • Review
  • Hands-on* evaluation


Class sizes range from 2 to 10. (Larger class sizes are possible, but due to the hands-on component the length of the class goes up.)

Students will receive a wallet card upon completion of the training.  Training is good for 3 years.


The base per student cost of the course $50

*Students must be observed operating the type of equipment that they will be using. Therefore the client company will need to provide the lift for the hands-on evaluation.
