NES Rentals Holdings, Inc. has become an AWPT training center in the Chicago area and will offer International Powered Access Federation (IPAF)-based operator training.
While NES has continually offered training to customers and employees, the company will now branch out with AWPT audited and up-to-date training. Trainees who complete AWP training will become certified and receive a Powered Access Licensed registration (PAL) card. The training center offers all customer training and all branch employees who operate or occupy aerial devices can conduct operator training.
"NES Rentals has made safety its highest priority," said Andrew Studdert, NES Rentals chairman and chief executive officer. "Being able to help our customers and employees achieve the goal of obtaining a PAL card through IPAF training, demonstrates the commitment we have placed on upholding the highest safety and training standards."
The center is located just outside of Chicago in Des Plaines, IL.
"In our ongoing effort to give our customers the best possible products and services, it was ntural for us to expand our current operator training programs with AWPT training," said Teresa Kee, director of enviornmental, health and safety for NES. "We are pleased to offer our customers several types of training, allowing them to find the program that will help them operate in the safest, most productive way possible."
