Cranes and Slinging

Cranes and Slinging


Rigging and Truck Mounted Crane


About the Course


The basic rigging and dogman course is a required starter course for all other crane courses and the theory for this can be run on the same day as your truck mounted crane theory.


Truck mounted knuckle boom cranes (more commonly know by their brand names Palfinger or Hi-ab) and truck mounted telescopic boom cranes (XCMG, Bob-lift) are fast becoming a staple in the transport industry and our training meets or exceeds the minimum standards.


When combined, the training will be a minimum of a whole day in the classroom with topics covered including hazard ID and controlling those hazards, selecting and inspecting lifting gear, correct slinging of loads and directing the load, prestart check and correct use of machines.  Both of these courses have a theory and practical part, and for the practical part you will need to provide a machine for a minimum of 2 hours.


Drivetech can also offer the intermediate slinging and dogman course (US 3789) which requires up to 2 days in the classroom (experience dependant) and a 3 hour assessment following the training.
