Frequently Asked Questions

What is a yellow card?

A yellow card is an EWP operator ticket that you get by completing a training course by a registered training organisation. They act as a form of proof, indicating that you have completed all of the required training and assessment to safely operate a scissor lift under 11 metres.

Do yellow cards expire?

Yes, yellow cards do expire and you will need to complete a refresher course after a period of five years. You’ll be notified when the expiry date is drawing near by the EWPA, so that arrangements can be made to complete a refresher course.

Do you need a yellow card to operate a scissor lift?

A yellow card is a ticket issued by the Elevated Work Platform Association (EWPA). This certification can be obtained by completing a training course to learn the skills needed to work in a safe and responsible way. Without a nationally recognised unit of competency, you cannot operate a scissor lift.

How do I get a yellow card?

To get a yellow card, you’ll need to undertake a training course. This will involve a range of learning methods, including written activities, verbal questions, observation and practical demonstrations. Upon completion, you’ll be able to operate a scissor lift in a safe and effective manner across different job sites and locations.
