Rigging Dogman and Cranes

About the Courses

Rigging

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

Drivetech can also offer the intermediate slinging and dogman course (US 3789) which requires a day in the classroom (experience dependent) and a 3 hour assessment following the training.

The theory portion sessions cover hazard ID and controlling those hazards, selecting and inspecting lifting gear, calculating load weights, correct slinging of loads and directing the load

Truck Loader Crane

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

The theory portion of this is a half day classroom session that covers hazard ID and controlling those hazards, reading rating charts, prestart check and correct use of machines. For the practical part you will need to provide a machine for a minimum of 2 hours.

Gantry or Overhead Crane

Found in workshops and fabrication buildings, these cranes run on rails and take the effort out of moving loads around a site. 30072 is a pre-requite for this course and the theory training and assessment portion will take 4 hours to complete. The practical portion of the assessment will be at the students’ place of work on their machine and will take 1.5-2 hours. The course covers hazard ID and controlling those hazards, identifying critical parts of the crane, prestart check and correct use of machines.

Non-slewing Articulated Crane

Hamilton crane and Franna Cranes are the 2 main types and this requires the 3789 slinging course to be completed prior. This is a level 4 course and requires a good understanding of English and maths to complete the unit standard. The classroom session will take a full day and this will include the theory portion of the assessment. The practical portion will be completed on-site and it will take a minimum of 2 hours. The course will cover hazard ID and controlling those hazards, identifying critical parts of the crane, load swing and centre of gravity issues, prestart checks, road travel and correct use of machines
