Mobile EWP Online Refresher (Practical AM)

This is a morning session for the practical part of the refresher.

Who should attend

This course is for you if you are already certified as a MEWP Operator and your certification is about to expire or needs renewing. Completing this course (including the practical part) will renew it. It is recommended that you complete a refresher 3 years after you first gain your EWP unit standards.

If you have a good understanding of computers and can work through an online course, then this course will allow you to complete the theory online, while reducing your time needed away from the workplace to complete the practical part of the refresher. The online course can be completed on a larger device, or tablet. It is not recommended that it is completed on a smartphone.

Course Content

The online theory modules refresh the requirements for a trainee that already holds unit 23966 - Describe types of elevating work platforms (EWPs), and legislative requirements for their use. The 2 online modules cover the theory part for you to refresh your EWP certificate. You will be issued a theory completion certificate after successfully completing the 2 theory modules. This certificate must be shown to the trainer when arriving for the practical booking of this course.

Once you are assessed as achieving your practical you will receive a full refresher EWP certificate.


  • To complete the online theory of 23966 we recommend that trainees use a desktop pc, or tablet.
  • Trainees will need to feel comfortable navigating and using online courses to complete this theory.
Special Notes
Some AMS sites will allow the trainee to book for the practical time only, lessening time away from the workplace. Other sites will need the trainee to stay in the group to complete the practical due to site sign in/out compliance.
