Possibilities to work with a certificate after training
Receiving the certificate in electronic form gives you the right to work in the countries associated in the OMHEC group, i.e. Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Great Britain.

In addition to the aforementioned work on drilling rigs, you can operate basket and scissor lifts (English, commonly used name: boom lifts, scissor lifts) on construction sites, in companies dealing with installation assembly, lighting repairs, building factory and warehouse halls, and even in advertising companies or providing greenery care services.
