For more than fifty years Genie has provided education, support and solutions that fleet owners, employers and operators depend on to help protect their investment and livelihood.
Who better to provide the training than the people who make the lifts?
Whether in-person or online, Genie can help train your team to operate, sell or maintain your aerial equipment to its full potential. We offer safety training for operators or instructors, in-depth product training for salespeople and service training for technical personnel; all designed by the people who know your equipment best.
For high quality functional training at your convenience, we recommend our Pro Suite online classes: Genie Lift Pro for online operator training, available through participating Genie Dealers, and Tech Pro for online service training classes, available to order from us.
Qualified and Certified
In the aerial work platform industry the terms “qualified” and “certified” are often used interchangeably in connection with training for employees who operate or maintain mobile elevating work platforms (MEWPS). Take a look at the Genie Insights on "qualified” and “certified” below to learn more:Definitions of Qualified and Certified
Lift Pro Online Operator Training
Safety is always job one on every work site. Most accidents or equipment damage happens when operators overlook important safety precautions or don’t fully understand how to operate equipment. That’s why Genie developed this two-part program, delivering a standardized MEWP or telehandler training package, to help operators stay safe and fleet owners reduce their repair costs.
Genie Lift Pro Training
- Designed by the manufacturer for high-quality, simple and standardized delivery
- Meets applicable ANSI, OSHA and CSA requirements
- Is applicable to operators of most MEWPs or telehandler brands, makes and models
How It Works:
- Purchase direct from a participating Genie Distributor.
- Complete the general training anytime, online and at your own pace. Video, graphics and narration make it easier to follow and learn.
- Complete a short hands-on training with your Genie Dealer for instruction and experience operating the applicable MEWP or telehandler models.
- Receive your Genie Lift Pro aerial access card verifying completion of the training required to become a qualified MEWP or telehandler operator.
It’s your equipment, why let someone else do the training? A Genie Lift Pro online operator user account is available to order on www.gogenielift.com or by calling 1-877-367-5606, under part number 160674CARD for MEWPs and 1259260CARD for telehandlers.
Lift Pro Train the Trainer Courses
Genie Lift Pro Train the Trainer courses are designed to qualify operators in the safe use of Mobile Elevated Work Platforms or Telehandlers and then provide additional helpful training techniques and information that can improve their ability to deliver
a successful Genie Operator Training Course. After having completed the Train-the Trainer course, the trainee's employer must determine if they are then qualified, as defined by criteria set forth in OSHA and ANSI, to train other trainers or operators
The course is delivered using curriculum that combines both formal and hands-on training. Each participant will receive a Lift Pro Operator Training Kit upon successful completion of the course.
