Why crane operator training and certification?

As you probably know,  many general contractors, industrial plants, job sites, etc. already require certification. So, if you have employees operating cranes, you need to get them certified. And this does apply to existing crane operators as well as new hires. No one is grandfathered in.

What does crane operator training include?

Our Crane Operator Certification Training Course is two to three days long, depending on the size of the cranes included in the training.

For example, if the student or class only needs certification for small and medium cranes (up to 75 tons), training will last one day with the written and practical exams on the second day. However, if they need certification large and lattice cranes as well, there will be two days of training. The written and practical exams are the following day, so the entire process is either two or three days total.

Not the right time frame for you? We can customize a program to meet your specific needs.

We also have an introductory crane operator course, for individuals seeking to get into the industry. It is five days of extensive training- both hands-on and in the classroom, designed to prepare students to take the written and practical certification exams on the last day of class.

How many employees can be trained at once?
