Crane Training and Certification
Crane Schools Certification TrainingCrane training and crane operator certification are perhaps the most important contributors to crane safety in the construction industry. Not only is choosing the right crane training provider necessary for safe crane operation, there is no substitute for crane related experience. Experience is how an employer can separate crane operator qualification from crane operator certification. OSHA has always required crane operators to be qualified. But in the last decade more and more states, cities, and companies have started requiring crane operator certification or a crane license.
Federal OSHA will start requiring crane certification for all construction crane operators in November 2014.
Crane operator certification has had its supporters that believe that everyone should demonstrate a minimum level of knowledge and be issued a certification card. However, it has also had its opposition, who think that by getting a crane certification, an operator that passed a written test and swung a weight through a test course has the same perceived or tangible qualification as a veteran crane operator. A crane certification means you have demonstrated the minimum knowledge necessary by the certification company to operate a crane (crane license to learn).
