We also offer Train the Trainer courses for this power pallet course. All employers who have employees that work at height must have their workers successfully complete the full CPO-approved Working at Heights Training program. The full course is valid for a period of 3 years from date of successful completion. To avoid this certification from expiring the Working at Heights Refresher Course will need to be completed.
