                  CRANE TRAINING
Recognised skills and
qualifications from
crane training are a door
to steady employment.
The construction indus-
try has always had a
demand for skilled
crane operators, and
they are still much
needed today.



    Crane training offers a lot of advancement and can be an exciting career path. Compared with other jobs,
the wages are not too shabby either for a crane operator in Australia, and some other in countries the Middle
East as well. Even with a lot of people losing their jobs and a lot of companies downsizing, for a qualified
heavy equipment operator it seems there are still a lot of opportunities.

CRANE OPERATORS
    A crane operator's skill and expertise is needed in the construction sector where heavy loads are
transpored, as well other industries including transport and mining where they have to load and unload heavy
loads. The moving of any kind of heavy object seems almost impossible without a crane, and if it was
possible for the task to be done without a crane it would just be too time consuming, not to mention
expensive. The reason why the operators are in such high demand is because a crane is no good by itself.
    The training equips operators with the required knowledge to operate a crane. There is a high demand
for crate operators who are qualified and who know what they are doing. As in any industry, a person's skills
and expertise are what separates them from the rest of the crowde so they stand out, which is what makes
them highly in demand.




                                                          There are many accredited institutions that offer
                                                           crane training to people who would like to work
                                                            in this field. The advantage of a HPOTS
                                                             training program lies in our instructor's ability
                                                             to provide industry know how and our small
                                                            class size. And, our one week course structure
                                                          means you gain your accreditation sooner.
