Participants must have successfully completed Working at Heights Training through a C.P.O Approved training provider and hold a valid certificate in Working at Heights in order to operate an Elevated Work Platform.
Participants who are registered in the EWP-01 training program, will be required to complete an additional practical component to obtain their certification. This applies to all equipment operator courses and is completed at your work-site location
. This practical component is not required to occur on the same date as the theoretical (in-class) component.
This practical assessment is performed on site due to the requirement to ensure the participant is competent in operating, inspecting and maintaining the specific model they will be using in the workplace.
If the participant is currently un-employed or if a worksite/equipment is unavailable for the practical assessment, please do not hesitate to contact Paramount Safety Consulting Inc as we will be happy to assist you through this process. The practical evaluation must be booked through Paramount Safety Consulting Inc. and travel charges may apply. Please contact the office at 905-661-7233 for more information.
