Goscor Hi Reach provides the following accredited training:

  • Unit Standard 243272 training – Accredited by the Services Seta and The Institute for Work at Height (IWH Professional Body). This is basic training on operating a mobile elevating work platform.
  • Basic safety familiarisation and handover training – We offer machine specific training to each operator prior to any of our machines being handed over. All operator familiarisation sessions are conducted fully in accordance with the international safety norms and directives ISO 18878:2013. Training can be done at our offices in Alrode but can also happen on-site ensuring operators are fully comfortable operating the machine in their actual working environment.
  • NNQF Course on basic fall prevention We have designed a practically orientated, in-house training intervention which empowers learners to be recognised by the IWH PB (Institute for Work at Height – Professional Body) as a MEWP Practitioner, and not simply a MEWP Operator.

  • Machine specific technical training – It is important that our customers are not only equipped to operate our machines but that they also know how the machine works. Our quality machines are designed to be easy to use and offer a safe way to work at height, but with basic familiarisation training, operators will be able to use the equipment more effectively and safely.
