Overhead Crane/Hoist Operator & Rigger

Overhead Cranes, the workhorses of the industry, attract little interest until they become inoperable or have a failure. CICB’s Overhead Crane/Hoist 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.

What Past Attendees Say:

“I want to thank everyone involved in making this class come about with such short notice from us.  The trainer was great and very helpful in many ways. I was just so impressed with the trainer and his concern for our safety in every aspect of working on the crane that I would love to see him come and do this for us again.”
