The aim of this course is to provide delegates with knowledge of the most up to date examination and discard criteria. The course looks at different types of crane rope construction, the different modes of rope deterioration and the current standards and legislation that apply to steel wire rope examination.

The course is considered suitable for those having little or no knowledge of rope inspection/examination and rope products in general, as well as, those more experienced individuals wishing to update themselves with the most up to date published standards and codes of practice.

Each course delegate will be expected to complete a short theory test to demonstrate a good understanding of the course contents. 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 for 1 day. Bespoke courses can also be discussed upon application.

The course is generally held at our Head Office at Harworth, however we are also able to utilise other Certex locations, or hold courses at Client premises if adequate facilities are available.
