Skyworks provide on-site training for all types of MEWP’s (mobile elevated work platforms). MEWP training provides operators with the essential level of skills and knowledge required to operate MEWP’s safely and efficiently with competence.

The wider benefits of our concise training courses are greater productivity, lower downtime and maintenance costs due to operator error. Site access is also greatly enhanced, as so many industries are enforcing a policy so MEWP’s may only be operated by trained operatives.

As well as providing training to the construction industry, we also work closely with many other business sectors including Media, Signage, Telecommunication, Facility Management Companies & Local Authorities to name but a few.

With our extensive knowledge and understanding of working at height we can provide you with training that suits your business needs.
