JLG Industries, Inc., an Oshkosh Corporation company [NYSE:OSK] and a global leading manufacturer of aerial work platforms and telescopic material handlers, has won the SolutionFest Best Mobile Solution award from The eLearning Guild for its “Introduction to JLG Scissor Lifts” course.
The award was announced at the Guild’s Learning Solutions Conference & Expo 2013, held earlier this year in Orlando, Fla.

In addition to JLG, award winners included Toys “R” Us, AARP, UMass Memorial Health Care, CarMax, American Red Cross, State College of Florida Manatee-Sarasota, Serco Inc., Articulate and North Carolina Community Colleges. JLG’s mobile solution was developed by Artisan E-Learning, a contractor based in Jacksonville, Fla.
The “Introduction to JLG Scissor Lifts” course describes scissor lifts manufactured by JLG, the history of scissor lifts, their typical applications and the basic types of scissor lifts. The 25-minute course is designed for all levels of scissor lift users, from sales and service to operators and parts personnel, and can be used on the sales floor, in the maintenance area and at client sites.
