Mobile Crane (A60)


Mobile cranes are probably the most versatile type of lifting equipment available. Suitable for short-term to long-term operations, for re-positioning loads at ground level and for lifting loads up to great heights. For example, a single machine may be used for lifting steel roof sections into position in London, unloading an industrial machine weighing 60 tonnes in Cardiff and erecting a tower crane in Edinburgh, all within the space of a week!

Examples of those who would be suited to attending this course:

  • An employee of a construction company which owns a mobile crane and you wish to become the operator
  • Someone with no lifting operations experience who is searching for a type of career which has few similarities to any other. This course will give you the foundation knowledge required to do so.

Course options (duration includes the CPCS Technical Test):

  • 10 Day Foundation course: suitable for those with no experience in the use of lifting equipment
  • 6 Day Experienced Worker course: suitable for those with experience in the use of other crane types, e.g. crawler cranes/tower cranes

There are limited places available on each course, see prices and check availability now.
