Prerequisite: Adult Learning Theory


Crane or hoist incidents can cause significant injuries and deaths as well as extensive property damage. Legislation states that competent crane operators require training that includes duties, operation, terminology, inspection and maintenance among others. Legislation requires classroom training as well as supervised operation before an operator is considered competent.

This course will develop in-house overhead crane trainers, enabling your facility to be self-sufficient in regards to your crane/hoist operator training needs.


This course will develop presentation skills so the learner will be able to provide their students with an understanding of crane/hoist terminology and safety principles, the ability to safely operate and inspect a crane/hoist and assess and control hazards on site. Upon successful completion of this course a certificate, and/or wallet card where applicable, will be emailed to the company contact.


This course is designed to meet or exceed provincial legislation and industry best practices.

Duration and materials

The course includes approximately 16 hours of theory, delivered in an extensive course on duties, operation, terminology, inspection and maintenance. Training will include the actual course to be delivered to the learner’s students, has the learner present sections of the course to develop presentation skills, and a Practical Evaluation course. Train-the-Trainer (TTT) learners will receive a manual that includes detailed instruction on the course to be presented and a file which includes a PowerPoint presentation of the course, student manual, student exam, inspection checklists and the practical evaluation which will be emailed to the company contact with the training certificates.

Target audience
