Course of training

The course is delivered in two parts: as a theory lecture and practical exercises. The instructors from the Center provide knowledge on the construction of individual elements of the platforms, teach the principles of safe use of devices, and regulations related to technical supervision. Classes are held stationary, in various Polish cities, or online, on our educational platform.

The practical part is an opportunity to practice the acquired skills before the state exam. It takes place on the maneuvering yard, where participants use the equipment from the Center's base.

The duration of the training, both in theory and in practice, is adjusted to the participants' level of advancement. It can be from a few to about 30 hours.

Training participants

We invite people who are over 18 years of age, have a minimum basic education and can demonstrate a state of health that allows them to work on a given device, to the mobile lift operator training courses.

The trainings are attended both by people who want to learn the operation from scratch and those who already have basic knowledge and skills. At the registration stage, we ask customers about experience in service, so that we can assign them to the right group, with the appropriate program and number of hours of classes.

Examination for UDT qualifications

The course ends with an exam that participants take at the Center, before UDT examiners. The training program is adapted to the examination requirements.
