Crane training by crane experts or introductions to/training in devices right at the construction site/p>
In connection with hiring or purchasing our assembly cranes, you can also book crane training with us – the courses are flexible, tailored to your existing knowledge and practically orientated.
Heavydrive's crane expert Markus Striedl holds the training courses in theory and practice at the headquarters in Tapfheim. Many professional associations offer crane certificates, but mostly without practice. Heavydrive's crane certificate offers everything in one place. Theory alone is not enough.
Training can be booked for one to ten people per course, and at short notice. The wide range of Heavydrive cranes, assembly devices and suction systems offers diverse opportunities to get plenty of experience with the devices.
The duration of the course depends on the knowledge of the participants and the necessary training time. For beginner-level customers, the course normally lasts five working days. To receive a crane certificate, at the end of the course the participants have to prove what they have learned in a test. If they pass the test, the participants receive a certificate and a reference manual.
Why a crane certificate?
For years, customers have required a crane certificate on the construction site, mainly for liability reasons. A cautious crane operator with a crane certificate and experience causes less collateral damage than an operator with a little instruction and no experience. Besides that, experience saves time and money in the long run.
Professional associations also require crane operators to have training (§ 29 German Trade Association D6)
A crane certificate is valid for life and can be upgraded for different types of cranes with additional training.
