Telehandler Operator Training

In addition to MEWPs, ABC of Wisconsin offers classes that bundle MEWP and telehandler operation training, or standalone telehandler training, for maximum training flexibility for you or your team. Much like the boom lift and scissor lift operator training, telehandler operator training includes an online and in-person component. The course covers:

  • Details on the guidelines governing telehandler operation
  • Review of the machine’s components, decals, manuals and controls
  • Proper inspection protocols
  • Safe operation training for telehandlers

Contact ABC of Wisconsin to become qualified to become a telehandler operator, MEWP operator or both with ABC of Wisconsin and JLG.

What is MEWP Operator Training?

MEWP operator training is an ANSI requirement. If you are going to operate a MEWP, such as a boom lift (you might call this a cherry picker or manlift) or scissor lift, you’re required to have MEWP operator training. The same goes for any person operating a telehandler.

During MEWP training, you’ll learn:

  • What agencies, regulations and requirements govern MEWP operation
  • MEWP manuals, decals and pacards
  • Machine components and control
  • Inspection requirements
  • Machine safety
  • How to properly operate a MEWP
