The Mobile Crane Operator Training program is specifically designed to upgrade the existing knowledge and skill levels of experienced operators, trainees, safety personnel, inspectors, maintenance personnel, managers, and supervisors. The information provided in the classroom is reinforced with hands-on application sessions on mobile cranes at Energyray training facilities or at client’s site.

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.
