The specific aim of this course is to provide managers and users of lifting equipment with an understanding of the legal requirements of the Statutory Instruments. The course is ideal for those who need to show they have received professional training on the requirements of LOLER and PUWER

Although a basic course, the content is quite substantial and covers the following areas:

  • Requirements of Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations 1998 (LOLER)
  • Requirements of the Provision and Use of Work Equipment Regulations 1998 (PUWER)

Each course delegate will be expected to complete a short test. If successful, a certificate will be issued. This will help the Employer to address certain legal requirements by being able to demonstrate employee competency. A detailed course handout is also provided for future reference.


The standard course is intended to last ½ a day. Bespoke courses can also be discussed upon application.


The course is generally held at our Head Office at Harworth, however we are also able to utilise other Certex locations, or hold courses at Client premises if adequate facilities are available.


The content of this course and the standard of instruction has been approved by the Lifting Equipment Engineers Association (LEEA). A certificate will be issued by LEEA on successful completion of the course.


Certex UK offers a range of standard training courses as detailed on our web site and bespoke training courses can be tailored to suit your specific needs. Many of our standard courses are LEEA certified.
