Overhead CranesThe online overhead crane training certification course is one of our more popular online safety training courses. This overhead crane hoist course is also commonly referred as sling hoist and chain hook. It is mandatory that all personal operating this type of lifting equipment be certified. This type of online testing is recognized in Canada and the United States, and is great for our western clients that need safety training in Winnipeg, Edmonton and Calgary, Alberta, where trainers are a little harder to find in remote areas.

This sling hoist operator training can be administered for a new operator or for a refresher course. The online overhead crane operator course will review the does and don'ts of overhead crane operation, as well as the fines and penalties that could be imposed if an accident were to happen.

Our online programs were specially developed to aid with illiteracy in the workplace and can work with most types of overhead cranes that you have at your facility. Including the gantry crane and jib crane.
