Aerial work platforms are classified as material handling devices that are subject to technical supervision by the Office of Technical Inspection. For people who would like to work as an operator of these devices, this means, among other things, the need to have appropriate qualifications, confirmed by a state examination. Our Center organizes a basket lift course that effectively prepares you for this exam in terms of theory and practice.
