The Blended Train-the-Trainer Program starts with four weeks of pre-classroom online coursework. These classes are available 24/7, so you can take sessions during times that are most convenient for you.

Three weekly sessions cover training fundamentals and instruction on aerial work platform and telehandler operation, plus a fourth session to finish online coursework, before heading to the on-site instruction in McConnellsburg, PA.

Train the Trainer Hands On

Hands-on Instruction
The program continues with three days of on-site instruction at the JLG Training Center in McConnellsburg, PA. This state-of-the-art facility features: 

  • Four-acre proving grounds with mixed terrain, simulated power lines and aerial work platform and telehandler targets 
  • Four-bay service training facility 
  • Three classrooms with large projection screens and HD monitors for full views of lessons 
  • Lift and access equipment simulator  

Extensive drive time on the proving grounds plus additional classroom time with qualified instructors round out the blended training program.

Here’s what graduates are saying about the JLG Blended Train-the-Trainer Program:
“I was very impressed with the four-week online course plus the hands-on experience at JLG’s new training facility. The advanced (online) classes left no stone unturned in prepping the trainer on everything you need to know to teach a class… My favorite part was the interaction and the hands-on work we did over three days at the JLG facility. I highly recommend this course!” – Jeff Stachowiak, National Training Safety Director, Sunbelt Rentals

“I attended the online portion and was especially pleased to have as much drive time as I did. Your course is well on its way to becoming the elite course for the industry!” – Jon Naff, Operator Trainer, Lift Incorporated
