This modular training program is for persons operating any mobile crane with a lifting capacity of 0 to 8 tons including any of the following crane types: articulating (knuckle) boom, telescoping boom, radial boom derricks (RBDs), sign erectors, or carry deck industrial-type cranes.

This training program is a combination of on-the-job and classroom training.

5 Days – For operators with less than 100 hours of operating experience. This program will allow participants additional hands-on operating exposure to articulated crane and RBD operation.
