    Course Description

    Course description

    The Overhead Crane training course includes general maintenance and inspection techniques of the crane giving candidates the expertise to maintain continued Overhead Crane safety in the operating environment of your company.

    The work-based training method increases the relevance of the Overhead Crane operator course to the application. Our professional trainer assessors tailor Overhead Crane courses to the equipment available on client premises and the environment where the Overhead Crane is used.

    Overhead Crane safety training can incorporate practical tasks, meaning candidates are able to undertake crane training on jobs they are required to complete in their normal working day.

    Successful candidates receive an Overhead Crane certificate and photo ID card accredited to ITSSAR.

    Frequently asked questions

    Is there a minimum age requirement for completing Overhead Crane operator training?
    With the exception of Lift Truck operators, there is no minimum age outlined in any UK legislation for plant operators.

    Lift Truck operators in the UK must be over the minimum school leaving age (except in docks where they must be at least 18 years old).

    You can find out more here: HSE Workplace Transport FAQ

    Is there an upper age limit for completing Overhead Crane operator training?
    Do I receive an Overhead Crane licence when I complete this training?
    There is no such thing as a license for any piece of plant machinery in the UK.

    The term ‘licence’ suggests a document issued from a governmental or other constituted authority to operate an Overhead Crane. No such authority exists; there are only accrediting bodies and training providers who operate independently of the HSE or any other government organisation.

    Successful candidates do receive a certificate and photo ID card, sometimes referred to as an Overhead Crane ticket; this provides evidence that the candidate has completed training and is certified to use the equipment as outlined on the Overhead Crane certification.
