Overhead Crane Training at Your Facility

As you are aware, crane training is part of the requirement for applicable ISO certification and our programs are designed to meet provincial legislation Canada Wide.

During the training session, we review specific procedures that are part of the everyday work, performed by the attendees.

We bring critical parts to the classroom, some of them new and some abused for each of the attendees to handle.

We have videos that demonstrate graphically the correct procedures and results when they are not applied.

We review actual lifting practices that we are shown and provide recommended procedures for review by your safety committee. The Crane Training Canada Training manual provided, will become a resource and reference manual for the operators long after the course is over.
