Aerial & Scissor Lift - Train the Trainer

Course number : WSAF 017   ID : 2332   
« back to classes page
Scissor Lifts and Aerial Lifts are utilized for many activities in both the general industry and construction. While using aerial lifts is generally a safer way to perform tasks at heights compared to using a ladder, they can also be very dangerous and costly for untrained operators not aware of the hazards involved in the operation and functionality of the machines.

This 1-day certification course is designed to provide candidate instructors with the skills and knowledge to teach an effective aerial and scissor lift operator course and evaluate compliance. Participants will learn the instructional techniques involved to best deliver concepts in a classroom and/or field environment.

What Will I Learn?

  • OSHA/ANSI operator requirements.
  • How to conduct an aerial lift inspection.
  • Identify the different types of lifts and uses on job sites.
  • Fall protection while operating a scissor/aerial lift.
  • Electrical hazards.
  • Dynamics of tip-over.
  • Manipulation of operational controls.
  • How to evaluate operators’ performance.
  • How to educate non-operators about safety protocols.
  • Steering and maneuvering.
Be prepared to perform satisfactorily on equipment as an operator during training.

Walk Away With:

  • Authorized Trainer status that will legally allow you to train and operate both scissor and aerial lifts on the job.
  • Training workbook, with extensive notes, to use during the course and on the job site.
  • A hard copy of the full training curriculum partnered with a flash drive containing full curriculum content for site customization.
  • Wallet card template for site operator certification.
  • Certification of Completion provided by CSI Workforce Development and Training.
  • Aerial & Scissor Lift Trainer Industry Certification (valid for 5 years anywhere in the United States).


Students must be 18 years of age or older due to Federal Law. Each participant attending Live Online sessions will be required to attend a hands-on equipment inspection, assessment and demonstration to receive certification. Once training is complete our CSI Workforce Development & Training Coordinator will reach out to you and set a date and time to have the hands-on requirements performed 1x1 with our instructor for final certification.

Who Should Attend?

This course is recommended for anyone that wants to train their employees to safely operate an aerial and/or scissor lift and certify at their own facility.
