Overhead Crane Operator Training

Lead your company into a safer, smarter era of overhead crane operation with Hoist & Crane Service Group’s Overhead Crane Operator Training. As a leading provider of hoist and crane inspection, maintenance, and repair services, we see how mismanaged crane operations result in hefty repair and replacement costs, lost revenue due to downtime, and significant productivity losses. To address this, we created our Overhead Crane Operator Training course—a cost-effective, time-efficient program designed to equip your crane operators with the essential operational skills they need for the seamless, safe operation of your overhead cranes.

Hoist & Crane Overhead/Gantry Crane Operator Training courses are intended to provide students of any experience level with the necessary classroom and applicable hands-on instruction to perform the duties of an operator as required by ANSI B-30.2 upon completion and receiving a passing mark. 

Our Crane Operator Training Course

Whether onboarding new employees or providing a refresher course for your existing crane operators, our training program is an investment that pays dividends in enhanced safety, reduced equipment wear and tear, and decreased service call-outs due to operator errors.

The courses consist of an eight-hour classroom session with a written exam to test students’ understanding of the basic requirements and best practices. The classroom training and testing will immediately be followed by a second day of hands-on operational training and demonstration, with a functional, hands-on test to conclude the training. The hands-on training can be custom tailored to each customer’s unique type of equipment to prepare better or enhance the student’s knowledge of the equipment that they use every day.

Our Overhead Crane Operator Training course offers an in-depth curriculum designed to empower your personnel with crucial skills and knowledge, including:
