Overhead Crane

Overhead Crane training would be delivered to you on your own site; you would need to supply the crane/equipment. Basic training must be conducted off the job, however during later stages of the training some work tasks may be able to be incorporated once candidates have reached an acceptable standard of safe operation. Every endeavour is taken to minimise the impact on normal working operations and ensure that training is relevant and industry specific.
