This 1-day overhead crane operator safety training course is offered at our Milwaukee location on a monthly schedule.  This course is ideal for companies that add a few new operators each month but do not have enough for an On-Site Training Course.  This course will help you meet OSHA and ASME B30.2 requirements for training. Seasoned and Novice crane operators alike  benefit from the information concerning basic crane construction, rigging, crane controls, load swing and pre-operational inspections.
