* If two machine types are trained on in a single day, the maximum number of delegates reduces to 4.

For machines with a maximum lift height over 90 feet (30mtrs) or for machines of extreme complexity a 2 day course will be required.

It is the customers responsibility to make sure that machine to be trained on has a current LOLER Certificate. The employer is also responsible for providing all Personnel Protective Equipment (PPE) such as harnesses, lanyards and safety helmets as required.
