MEWP Training for You and Your Staff

ARA created the MEWP Train-the-Trainer and MEWP Operator Training so you can satisfy OSHA requirements and the new ANSI A92 standards. Both of ARA’s MEWP training programs contain self-paced classroom portions that are available for purchase through RentalU. The course takes about 4 hours to finish and must be complete before attending the hands-on training.
