Elevated Work Platform (EWP) HIANZ "SILVER CARD" / Unit Standards - NZQA

Central Group in association with HIANZ is proud to offer the new SILVER CARD training program which has been developed by HIANZ (Hire Industry Assoc of NZ).  This course is unit standard assessment (NZQA) based and is used to assess operators as “Competent” with EWP operations etc. The standards define the core requirements of competency and ensure a moderation process is in place. 
Operators will receive a comprehensive EWP safety manual, However operators "MUST" also have prior operation experience and knowledge of the machines they are to use on the course. 

*Currently this training is conducted @ Mac Access or on customers sites where Machines must be supplied! *
Please also Note: 1 machine  = 6 - 8 operators maximum (Depending on machine types).     
                              
2 machines = 6 maximum
