INSTRUCTOR TRAINING: TRAINER INFORMATION

All training should be delivered by a qualified person who is experienced with the specific model used for training and knowledgeable regarding the laws, regulations, safe use practices, manufacturer’s requirements, and recognition and avoidance of hazards associated with their use. The 2 day MEWP Trainer and the 2 day Telehandler Trainer courses can be booked at our Guelph, Ontario head office location, or at your site subject to appropriate facilities, equipment and travel costs.

Organizations looking to train their employees need to use their own independent judgment and discretion in successfully appointing a trainer. Continuing professional development for trainers involves constant upgrading of skills and knowledge, and staying on top of new developments and changes in the industry. The industry standards lay out the best practices and help outline some key skills and knowledge recommendations for prospective trainers to strive to achieve:

  • Know the rules, regulations and standards pertaining to equipment
  • Have knowledge of the equipment, operator manuals and warning labels
  • Have awareness of potential hazards and the means to protect against them
  • Be able to identify and avoid potential workplace hazards
  • Understand manufacturer’s guidelines for proper use and application of the equipment
  • Know the consequences of improper use and application of the equipment
  • Have a good safety record and be safety-minded
  • Be a good communicator and presenter
  • Understand teaching methods and learning styles of adult learners
  • Be able to deliver training in a manner to ensure understanding by the audience


Skyjack Safety Training can help with many of these key requirements and our trainer courses play a big role in a trainer’s development. Trainer candidates should have a good working knowledge of the equipment they intend to train on and they should have experience operating. This will help when providing feedback to students on how to correct their mistakes or bad habits. Operator certification is not included with our trainer courses, although options are available separately if needed.

ON SITE TRAINING

WE COME TO YOU

Skyjack Service Training can be performed at your facility. The classes are tailored to be suitable for an entry level technician as well as the experienced lift technician. Skyjack’s unique, flexible format allows our experienced instructors to provide valuable information that not only covers common troubleshooting and problems, but also addresses issues that may only affect specific geographic areas.


The technical training courses are specific for each Skyjack family model and will involve a full day formal classroom session. The classroom covers:

  • Electrical and hydraulic symbol identification
  • Component operation
  • Hydraulic and electrical schematic reading
  • Schematics are defined and traced out for each function, reviewed in detail providing your technician with a better understanding of the operation of the equipment.
  • Troubleshooting scenarios to enhance the technicians understanding, and to provide familiarity with the common components between Skyjack family models.

Each student receives a certificate and workbook so that information can be referenced later.
