Our Lorry Mounted Crane Course Structure

The course involves both practical and theory training. Attending will enable an operator with no crane experience to progress through the course so that once they successfully pass the associated knowledge and practical tests, they will qualify as a Lorry Mounted Crane Operator certified by the examiner. They will receive training on the Safe Working Practices applicable to crane operations and sufficient practical training to ensure the operator is conversant and comfortable operating machines in a work environment.
