Scissor Lift Training & Certification FAQ

Do I need a Scissor-Lift Operator license?

Yes…But. It’s not called an Scissor-Lift license. It’s an Scissor-Lift operator certificate. You need to get training and lift operator certification from a qualified aerial lift trainer.  An Scissor-Lift operator certificate is issued once the operator has passed all training and tests. To back up your lift ticket, all documentation of AWP operator training are attached to your records. Your FREE smart card account will store all of that for you in one place.

Scissor lift training is required by law in Canada. Unfortunately, not all companies are aware of this requirement or have the time to train their staff on how to safely operate these lifts.

With Onsite Equipment Training Services you can be sure that your employees will receive the scissor lift operator training they need so you don’t get fined for non-compliance with safety regulations. We provide our services throughout Manitoba.  Cities including, but not limited to Winnipeg, Brandon, Portage la Prairie, Steinbach and more!

Scissor-Lift Certification Cost?

We price our programs, so you get the most punch for your budget. Your price starts as low as $147 for a combined aerial work platform operator course when you combine both scissor lift and boom lift.  Se also offer aerial lift fall protection in addition to our aerial lift training courses.

When can I get Scissor-Lift Training?

Convenient scissor lift training is not easy to find sometimes.

Companies like yours are require to have their employees go through scissor lift operator training before they can operate this equipment. This is a great safety measure, but it also makes it difficult for employers who don’t have the time or money to send their employees off the jobsite for this training.

Yes, we do. We offer an Scissor-Lift operator course to all of our clients no matter where they are. You can also take advantage of our online Scissor-Lift operator course. if you only need scissor-lift operator training or boom-lift operator training we can do that as well. For clients strapped for time , the online scissor-lift operator course or the online boom-lift operator course are excellent options.

We come to your team where they are. Winnipeg, Brandon, Portage La Prairie, Selkirk, Steinbach. The list goes on.
We also work in Northern Ontario cities like Kenora, Thunder Bay, and Dryden. Our name says it all.

How long does a Scissor-Lift ticket last?

An aerial work platform operator license expires every five years. Once expired, the operator needs to do a refresher course.
They can do the online aerial work platform operator course or the the more traditional aerial work platform safety course in person. It really depends on what you need.

Do you offer Scissor Lift Refresher course?

Yes, we do. The online program is a perfect fit for Lift operator recertification. We can come to Your workplace or jobsite and complete the practical evaluations onsite. We also do in-person recertification training if you prefer.

Scissor lift training can be hard to find.  Especially during peak season for construction when everyone is looking for training.

This is a high risk activity, and I’ve been to many jobsites where the operators are not properly trained or trained at all. The human and liability dangers are real and the costs are not worth the risk.

We offer on-site training in Manitoba to help you get the most out of your lift operators.  We make sure they can safely and correctly use their scissor lift. Our trainer will come out to your site at a time that works best for you, so your team can learn how to use these machines right away without having to take days off work or wait weeks until there’s space available at one of our competitors!

What are the Manitoba Workplace Scissor-Lift Regulations?

Working at heights is a dangerous and stressful job. It’s important to make sure that your employees are trained in safety procedures before they start working at height.

There are many different types of lifts available for hire, but not all lifts can be used on every site or completed the same tasks. This means that there is a lot of equipment out there which could cause an accident if it isn’t used properly.

We provide safe training for lifting equipment so that you know how to use each piece safely without putting anyone’s life in danger. Our experienced trainers will show you how to operate the lift with confidence, reducing the risk of injury and making sure your projects run smoothly from start to finish!

It depends on the size of your group and their experience. If you do the scissor-lift operator certification course or boom-lift operator certification course individually. You’re looking at about a half a day.
If you decide to combine the Scissor-Lift safety courses your looking at 6-8 hours. But again it depends on the size of the group and their experience.
