This course is aimed at delegates who are employed in the lifting equipment operation industry. It would also be beneficial to those who have no previous experience or have experience but require refresher training.


The course is a mixture of theory and practical. All delegates will be expected to complete both a written test paper and successfully demonstrate their level of basic operational skills under test conditions. On successful completion the delegate will be issued Certificate of Competency.


This course is usually delivered at our Energyray Training Centre, but can also be delivered at a client’s base/premises.
