AMP Sales & Service, LLC is an IPAF-approved training center that offers training on vehicle-mounted MEWPs (1b) and vehicle-mounted Bridge Inspection and Maintenance devices (2b).

The (2b) categories denote a MEWP that can be operated from  the chassis while the platform  is extended. Vehicle-mounted bridge-inspection and maintenance devices are currently addressed by ANSI A92.8 and is one of four ANSI A92 standards that has been replaced with the new A92.20/.22/.24 due for publication on December 10th 2018.

The new standards will require anyone operating Underbridge Access Equipment to be trained and certified to do so. It states that your operators will need both classroom & hands on training. It also states that the hands on training must be done in a safe environment free from moving vehicles.  Our state of the art classroom, dedicated UBIU (Snooper Truck) and private onsite bridge will give your operators the safest possible learning environment and fully compliant with the new ANSI A92 Standards.

According to the new standards, all training must be delivered by a qualified person who is experienced with the particular classification of MEWP on which training is being given. This qualified person must be knowledgeable about the laws, regulations, safe use practices, manufacturer’s requirements, recognition and avoidance of hazards as they relate to MEWPs.
