The 4A Mass Hoisting License is Gone. We're here to help.


Limited Time Offer... $79 Unlimited Continuing Education for Class 4 MA Hoisting License ...

... when you enroll in ONE of our class 4 continuing education courses - you can get all remaining class 4 continuing education courses FREE.



On November 18, 2016, changes made to 520 CMR 6.00 Hoisting Machinery took affect as part of the Governor's Executive Order 562 to update regulations. These changes included the elimination of the 4A - Unlimited Specialty Series restrictions ("4A restriction") from the Hoisting license. As of January 2, 2017, per state orders, we are no longer authorized to issue 4A continuing education certificates.


What this means for you:

Moving forward, you will need to decide which class 4 license grades you would like to keep. This will include the following grades:

  • 4B: Drill Rigs
  • 4C: Pipeline Side Booms
  • 4D: Concrete Pumps
  • 4E: Catch Basin Cleaners
  • 4F: Sign Hanging Equipment
  • 4G: Specialty Lawn Mowers

From there, you will need to complete the continuing education requirements for each individual grade. 


Continuing Education Requirements:

For the Class 4 Licenses, you are required to complete a minimum:

  • ONE hour of regulatory (law) training, for the entire class 
  • ONE hour of equipment specific training for each license grade

For Example: If you are renewing a 4B, 4C and 4G, this would require a total of 4 hours continuing education

  • 1-Hour regulatory (law),
  • 1-Hour 4B equipment specific,
  • 1-Hour 4C equipment specific,
  • 1-Hour 4G equipment specific

What if?:

If you completed your 4A continuing education early and already have a certificate, you are able to still submit it to the state for a short period of time (roughly January - March 2017 timeframe). After this (estimated) time period, you will be directed back to your continuing education provider to take further action. If this is your situation, and you are an "At-Leisure" customer, please contact us for further instruction.
