Mobile-equipment operators must know how to do the job properly and safely, as demonstrated by workplace evaluation. Formal (lectures, videos, etc.) and practical (demonstration and practical exercises) training must be provided.

Training programs offered by Safety Solutions & Supply programs are custom developed and updated routinely to ensure that the highest quality message is provided to students. All SS&S instructors are experienced in the subjects they lead. In addition, each has completed the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) Instructor Certification Training Program (ICTP).

All students receive certification cards upon successful completion of any SS&S training program. Their training work is recorded in a free virtual registry available on the SS&S website. This secure online portal gives employees and employers a digital database of all training events and activities.
