Overhead Crane Operator and Rigging

Course number: 808A
Length: 1 Day
Price: $250.00

This 1-day overhead crane operator training course is highly recommended for new crane operators and a refresher for those currently operating  a crane. This crane course covers all the OSHA/ASME requirements for overhead crane operation including the reasons behind the requirements.

I thought that having access to crane equipment in the lab was very helpful in learning materials covered in the course. I look forward to taking additional courses
here, and I will recommend this course to my co-workers.
