Each course delegate will be expected to complete a written and practical examination which will include conducting a thorough examination on a mobile crane. If successful, a certificate will be issued. This will help the Employer to address certain legal requirements by being able to demonstrate employee competency. A detailed course handout is also provided for future reference.


The standard course is intended to last 2 days. Bespoke courses can also be discussed upon application.


The course is generally held at the customer’s own premises as a crane will be required for the course. However we are also able to utilise Certex locations if required. This can be discussed upon application.
