Boom Lift Training & Certification

What does it cover? Our OSHA-compliant boom lift operator certification courses are updated to reflect the most recent changes made to the ANSI A92 standard for mobile elevated work platforms. Whether you want boom lift certification in as little as two hours with our online training or a more robust, customizable option like you get with our DIY training kits or on-site training, we can help you get the training you want in the way you want it and at a price you can afford.

We offer three different types of safety training for boom lift operators?

Training Kits

The kit is for those who want to do the training themselves. It's a reusable training presentation that is used to train groups of people all at one time in one location. If you need to train a trainer to use the kit we offer a train the trainer online course.

Online Training

Online is for those who prefer self-paced training from any location or for employers who need to assign and monitor employee training progress and exam scores. Online training is also eligible for bulk pricing discounts for groups of 16+ trainees.

Train the Trainer

Train the trainer courses are online and meant to certify a single individual to use the training kit to train others. The kit is included with the train the trainer online course for no additional cost and is reusable. Results in a lifetime certification.

Onsite Training

Onsite training is for companies looking for hands-on training on your own equipment at your location. We come to you (from Rexburg, Idaho) so travel expenses are included, because of this onsite training is best for groups of at least 5-10+ trainees.

What's in the Boom Lift Training Course (Boom & Scissor Lift Training Course)?

Our Boom Lift safety training course is regulation-compliant, and our online version fulfills OSHA’s classroom training requirement. Each class contains sections on anatomy, stability, safe operations, common hazards and more.

This presentation includes intermittent practice quiz questions to prepare for the final written exam included with the course. In addition to the written exam, this course also includes a checklist for employers to use when administering a practical exam as required.

Why do I need boom lift safety training?

In line with regulations, anyone who operates heavy equipment must receive training prior to operating the machine on their own. Requirements for refresher training related to forklifts or other processes are very specific. Most other equipment doesn’t have such specific requirements, but it’s wise to follow the same guidelines.

When it comes to refresher training, the standard in some instances (like forklifts) is very specific: operators must be re-evaluated every three years to see if they are still competent to operate the equipment. Best practices say to apply this same rule to all types of equipment. A so-called “free-pass” cannot be awarded based on experience, age, or time on the job. The extent of the evaluation is to be determined by the employer but should include a written and practical examination that proves continued competency.

  • Did You Know?


  • There are two different types of boom lift arm, straight and knuckle?

  • The biggest cause of injury and death with boom lifts is contact with a powerline?

  • Half of the fatalities from falls and from the boom lift being struck by another object?
