Please note that, unlike fork lift trucks, there is no laid down test for crane operators but they should know everything contained in guidance note GS39. For this reason we certify crane operators based on both a continuous assessment of their progress and also create a test based on site conditions.

Successful candidates are awarded a certificate of training which is recognised by the Factory Inspectorate as proof that formal training has been carried out.
