Become an operator of mobile platforms
Have you ever thought about changing your career or broadening your qualifications? Operator of mobile platforms is one of the most popular and valued professions on the labour market. Sign up for our course. Get certified as a platform operator. With us, you have the opportunity to learn everything from scratch or improve your existing experience of operating mobile platforms. Our course will provide you with a comprehensive knowledge of operating mobile platforms and the safety of the profession.
If you want to significantly improve work efficiency and enable employees to reach high and hard-to-reach installations, you should consider the course of operating these advanced devices that modern technology has provided us in recent years. Tasks performed with platforms replacing classic ladders and scaffolding allow to obtain the expected results more efficiently, faster and safer. In our center, we will teach you the correct operation of mobile platforms and you will obtain the appropriate qualifications of the Office of Technical Inspection required as an operator.
Mobile platforms - cranes, are included in the construction machinery group. Depending on the type, they consist of a platform suspended or raised by a lever that moves horizontally and vertically, as well as a boom and undercarriage. They are most commonly used at height for assembly and construction work. We can divide booms into articulated, telescopic or articulated-telescopic booms. The name mobile platform refers to the ability to move and also to the drive that results in the ability to move. A distinction can be made between platforms with an electric drive (from a rechargeable battery or from the mains) and those with a combustion engine. During our course, we will teach you how to use them as intended and in accordance with the operating instructions.
A basket lift and a scissor lift are often used for working at heights, e.g. in decorating, construction, assembly and finishing works. Aerial work platforms are most often mounted on car trailers. Their flexibility allows for external and internal use up to several dozen meters. Guaranteed range to every hard-to-reach workplace thanks to a telescope connected to the articulation system, as well as the ability to move in all directions, even with a raised basket. The heights will not be a problem to anyone because of the possibility of choosing a lift adapted to the height you plan to achieve. If it is necessary to lift extremely heavy building materials, structural elements or tools, it is worth using a telescopic loader or using telescopic platforms intended for this type of work. The aforementioned devices are used to operate on difficult ground or uneven terrain with the aid of a four-wheel drive. Ability to work in a place where the platform floor is located at very high altitudes or at large distances.
Mast telescopic platforms, on the other hand, are used for indoor work because of their non-marking wheels. Their low weight and compact dimensions make it possible to reach even the most difficult work areas and then lift and move them aside, despite all sorts of obstacles. However, scissor lifts are most commonly used for indoor work due to their tyres and low noise emissions, although they can also be used for outdoor work without problems if the surface is straight and has been previously paved. The greatest advantage is the compact size, which allows easy manoeuvring. Unpaved ground on construction sites only allows diesel and four-wheel drive mobile platforms to work. On hardened ground, it is possible to work with platforms driven by an electric motor.
With our training, no issues related to mobile platforms will be a problem for you. We will make sure that you complete the course satisfied and confident. Our instructors take an individual approach to each student and their friendly approach will make it easier for you to learn.
There are two categories of UDT service that we offer:
- low-speed scissor lifts
- self-propelled basket platforms (boom lifts)
- vehicle-mounted mobile platforms
- hanging platforms
- stationary platforms
- mast platforms
We will teach you the classification of different types of platforms and you will learn about their construction and the slightly different main elements. We will discuss, among others jib, turret, base of the device, i.e. the lower control panel, as well as stabilizing supports.
The choice of platform is quite an important issue. It is important to pay attention to the type of work to be carried out and to make sure that the person controlling it has the right authorisations and is familiar with the regulations, so that working with mobile platforms is highly efficient but also safe.
