Description and purpose of the training course

Hooking up and moving loads must be carried out in a responsible and safe manner. Every load that requires relocation is different.

This training is intended for employees who have at least some experience in this area.
After taking this training course, participants will know how they can safely hook up and move loads and how they can reduce risks to a minimum when working with a crane.

There is a hands-on competency test at the end of the training course. Our experienced and skilled instructors will ensure that you are fully prepared for taking the competency test.


The training course consists of a theoretical and a practical component. The theory learnt is applied in the practical component, giving the course an interactive nature.
