What are my options for bucket truck training?

Training Kits

The kit is for those who want to do the training themselves. It’s a bucket truck training powerpoint presentation used to train groups of people all at one time in one location. If you need to train a trainer we offer a train the trainer course.

Bucket truck training online is for those who prefer self-paced training from any location or for employers who need to assign employees courses and monitor progress. Online training is also eligible for bulk pricing discounts for groups of 16+.

Why do I need bucket truck 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 standards in some instances (like forklifts) are very specific: operators must be re-evaluated every three years t
