How do I get certified with your online mobile equipment training (i.e. fork lift, aerial lift, etc)?
All our mobile equipment online certification courses are CSA approved training courses which is a OHS regulation requirement for each province across Canada. OHS regulations in all provinces across Canada follow the CSA standards for mobile equipment operation. Upon successful completion of any of our mobile equipment online courses, a certificate of completion will be available to download and print immediately. You will receive your complete and full certification after the theory portion of the course.
However in order to finalize your certification, a practical evaluation needs to be completed at some point. So how is this done through an online course? It's quite easy actually. Once you complete the theory portion of the course, a practical evaluation checklist will be provided to you to download. You will provide this checklist to any supervisor across Canada (i.e. your current employer or future employer) and he/she can provide you with the practical evaluation (instructions are provided on how to do so and so is a complete easy to follow checklist). Once the practical portion of the course is completed by your Supervisor - keep the completed and signed checklist with you for record keeping. The practical evaluation should take no more than 30 to 35 minutes.
