This 2-day course assists employers in meeting the current federal and selected state regulations for Articulating Boom Crane Operator training, testing, and evaluation for operator general industry and construction use but not requiring national certification. This is NOT a national certification program. Please bring your own crane for practical evaluations.
The course includes classroom instruction, a student workbook, written exam, and hands-on evaluation. It covers pre-operation inspection, controls, functions, stability, set-up, outriggers, leveling, cribbing, hazards, wire rope, lifting forks, load hooks, safe operating practices, elevating and lowering loads, load placement, simple rigging, load rating charts, and lifting solutions. An operator photo ID card will be sent to you within 10 business days after the class.
“Operator Refresher” per selected state regulations and national standards, crane operators are required to attend a four hour refresher course every 36 months to become re-qualified. “Refreshers” receive a 90 page student workbook and would attend only the first day of the program and would take the written examination to become re-qualified. To attend as an “Operator Refresher” you must possess a current and non-expired OVERTON Safety Training Mobile Crane or Boom Truck Operator Safety Training ID card.
Attending the workshop as an “In-house Trainer” allows you to utilize our program internally for your company employees and includes all of the above as well as “How to Be an Effective Trainer”, color-keyed instructor’s manual, PowerPoint presentation of course material, instructor/evaluator photo ID card & certificate of completion (to be sent to you within 10 business days of course completion), 10 student workbooks, written exam, exam grading key, practical evaluation form, sign-in sheet, score sheet, record keeping instructions, student card template, and a trainer tote bag.
