Course Summary

Operator competency is key to safe overhead crane use. Effective training delivery of overhead crane inspection, use, and rigging principles is an essential component of competency.

Our program, taught by industry experts, is designed to provide workplace trainers with the required knowledge and tools to successfully deliver the program back in your workplace.

Train-the-Trainer participants require a certificate of competency. In order to receive a certificate of competency, the participant must achieve a passing grade on the written in-class test and pass the practical skills evaluation. The practical skills evaluation is to be performed at the worker’s place of employment.
