  • Workbook
  • Supplementary Handouts
  • Wallet Card Certification (upon successful completion)


The program takes part in a classroom for theory learning, but participation in the field is vital to successful completion. Participants are required to bring all site-required PPE, including :

  • Steel-toed work boots
  • High visibility vest
  • Hard hat (if required)
  • Any other PPE required by the workplace

NOTE: Because previous training is hard to judge from one training company to another, re-certification courses will only be made available to individuals able to present proof of previous training from Clockwork Safety & Equipment Training or another widely credible source. In-house training at a previous employer will NOT suffice.
