Online Overhead Crane Training

Overhead Crane Training uses broadcast quality video to teach workers how to safely operate overhead cranes. This course discusses bridge cranes, monorail cranes and jib hoists. In overhead crane training, your workers will learn about rated capacity and how to perform an inspection. They will also learn how to correctly use the control pendant, how to safely rig a load, how to use a sling, plate clamp and other lifting devices. "Overhead Crane Training" qualifies for continuing education units.
