If you would like to have a career as an overhead crane operator, you will…
Today’s workplace legislation insists on crane operators being certified before they can commence work operating a crane. There are many reasons for this, the prime one being safety – safety of the operator, safety of the people around the crane and safety of the property are all important areas. In recent years there have been too many injuries to people and property, often due to simple carelessness or a lack of operator safety knowledge. Effective training and certification will hopefully reduce the number of incidents.
In theory, to become a certified crane operator is a simple as passing a written and practical exam through the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO). Of course, in practice you would have little chance of passing either the practical or the written without first undergoing a training program that addresses all the areas within crane operators competency requirements.
At ATS Heavy Equipment Operator Schools we have a dedicated crane training division. The training offered is accredited and designed to provide you with the skills and knowledge to pass the NCCCO written and practical exams. The training program is an intensive three week course from Monday to Friday that is broken into a convenient three level structure.
Once you have completed the training you will be ready to undertake the certification exam. On completion of the exam, and passing, you will be ready to confidently tackle the workplace as a qualified and certified crane operator.
