On March 15th several students participated in Bobcat Enterprises Inc., Man Lift Training. Man lifts or self propelled elevating work platforms are a common piece of equipment found in many industries including: agriculture, construction, warehouses and factories. Students completing this training will receive a certification card to show future employers making them more employable and career ready. Students will also receive one graduation credentialing point. During this training students learned about: the safety precautions needed to use a man lift, how to inspect the man lift each day prior to use, and how to operate the equipment. After a class session over the machine students had to navigate the man lift through an obstacle course, and raise and lower it to receive their certification. Students participating were: Conner S., Alex J., Wyatt F., Clayton N., Austin H., Cameron T., Tanner D., Ethan S., and Derek C. We would Like to thank Barry Cochran from Bobcat enterprises Inc. for coming to the school and providing us with this training.
