"Mast mobile platforms" course - classes with the UDT exam 

In the mast climbing work platform, the work platform is moved up or down the mast

The mast mobile lift is one of the devices that have been subject to technical inspection. In order for it to be used in construction, renovation and other works, it is necessary to obtain a permit for operation, documentation and regular technical examinations. The supervision regulations also refer to the operator - he must be a specialist with appropriate qualifications, confirmed by an examination.

Participation in the mast climbing platform courses organized by us is an effective way to obtain these qualifications. Our instructors provide the knowledge needed to pass the exam in a practical way, paying particular attention to work safety. The courses for operators of mast climbing work platforms also include practical exercises. They are intended for people of all levels of experience, including beginners.

Mast climbing platforms

Mast climbing platforms are equipped with platforms with wheels and supports

These are handling devices, i.e. those that are used for vertical transport of people to the workplace.


These devices, also called self-climbing, have a characteristic lattice mast. A basket is placed on the mast - a work platform for transporting employees, building materials, goods and tools. The platform can be pulled out, which increases its working space. The mast is placed on a chassis with wheels. The device is powered by electricity, batteries or mains.


The mast platform is operated by the operator using a remote control or control panel. After activation, the basket moves vertically up or down on the mast thanks to the hoist. During operation, the platform rests on supports that ensure its stability.


Individual models of these devices are designed for indoor or outdoor use. In rooms, they are used to provide access to higher-located warehouse or shop racks, while outdoors they are helpful during construction or renovation works on the facades of buildings.
