Crane Operator Classes Vancouver - For the operators and the supervisors, new and current, the crane operator training course is suitable for all. Course content deals with relevant provincial, state and federal safety regulations. The training's first component includes complete in-class lessons and examination. After that is a hands-on customized session with practical instruction and evaluation.
The content of the course applies to all types and categories of overhead lifting crane machinery. The instruction will specifically focus on all aspects of crane operation that could be done at the trainee's workplace. Upon completion of the course, trainees would learn how to operate particular overhead lifting equipment, attachments and related components safely and efficiently.
The purpose of the operator course is to identify any potentially dangerous habits that an operator could develop while operating an overhead crane. Costly damage to equipment and products can be prevented with right habits. Training reduces the likelihood of a workplace incident or injury occurring.
The duration of the course is eight hours of classroom instruction followed by a few hours of on-site, hands-on, customized training. Participants would be graded on their knowledge of training material via written testing and an assessment of their practical knowledge. The minimum acceptable score is 80%.
During the in-class session, participants will know applicable legislation and guidelines, causes of occurrences and damages, danger awareness, internal responsibility, design principles and basic equipment, capacity ratings/load weight calculations, pre-shift equipment checks, safe hoisting/operating techniques, kinds of hardware, equipment applications/rigging, angles and hitches, operator/pedestrian safety, turning/flipping loads safely, hand signals for slingers and operators.
The practical training and evaluation part of the course must be pre-scheduled. This customized portion of the training will be held at the trainees' facility. The length of this practical training part is one to two hours. Two operators at a time would be trained by the instructor about skills such as planning the lift, right rigging practices and safe operation.
After finishing both the practical training and evaluation and the in-class instruction, the trainee would be tested via an exam. Every participant will be required to sign the safety rules. Individual wallet certificates would be given to successful trainees. The company would be given a framed wall certificate.
