Overhead Cranes, the workhorses of the industry, attract little interest until they become inoperable or have a failure. CICB’s Overhead Crane Operator Training program is specifically designed to upgrade the existing knowledge and skill levels of experienced operators, trainees, safety personnel, inspectors, maintenance personnel, managers and supervisors. The information in this two-day program provided in the classroom is reinforced with hands-on application sessions on overhead cranes. All personnel attending this program will gain significant and useful skills and will leave with a stronger understanding and appreciation of the requirements and responsibilities of Overhead Crane Operators.
