2020 NEPPA Hoisting Training Program 

 

Offered Quarterly at NEPPA (Littleton, MA)   |    Training Also Available @Your-Site  

 

 

 

Due to the rapidly evolving responses around COVID-19, NEPPA Headquarters/Training Center is closed to the public and all visitors until April 6, 2020 at which time the situation will be reassessed.  All in-house and @Your-Site Training has been postponed until May 4, 2020.

 

 


NEPPA offers hoisting Continuing Education and Test Prep classes for:

 

  • Class 1 (1B-1D) hoisting machines, i.e. cranes and bucket trucks
  • Class 2 (2A-2C) digging machines, i.e. excavators and backhoes

 

Per mandated requirement, all classes are scheduled for 4 hours. These classes are for both, continuing education (to renew the license) and the test prep (to prepare for the test to receive a brand-new license).

ONLY test prep attendees are NOT required to attend the full 4 hours of class.

 

Students attending classes for continuing education will need to bring their hoisting license for verification and will receive a certificate of completion at the end of each class. If the hoisting license is not brought to class for verification, or if the license has been expired for more than a year, the certificate will not be issued. In this case, you will have to take the test again. Those who attend for the test prep will receive information to study for the test.

 

Class Schedule* 

Hoisting classes are scheduled to be held quarterly at the NEPPA Training Center, however dates are subject to change and may be cancelled if there is lack of interest.

 

Hoisting Training is also offered @Your-Site.  Please indicate your preference on the registration form.
