Learn with the professionals – Expert crawler crane training from Ivor King

CPCS A02 Crawler Crane training is one of our most frequently requested courses, and is run on a regular basis throughout the year. This popular course is suitable for various levels of experience and is aimed at those wishing to pursue a lifting career in construction.

We operate our crawler crane training courses in small groups, spread over four full days. Revision materials are sent out before you attend the course, so you can focus primarily on the practical aspects of the training during your time with us.

The course covers various aspects of operating a crawler crane. During practical training, you’ll operate a crane with a telescopic jib, undertaking a variety of tasks whilst lifting various types of loads.

You’ll be in good hands, learning with our knowledgeable time-served instructors with decades of on-site industry experience. All our trainers are proficient operators of numerous types of plant and machinery, including Crawler Cranes.

Assessments take place on the fifth and final day, beginning with 40 randomly selected theory test questions, asked verbally by the examiner. On meeting the required standard, you’ll then qualify for a practical exam lasting 2½ hours.

Upon successful completion of the course, you’ll be awarded the CPCS Trained Operator Red Card for Crawler Crane above 10 tonnes.

A high percentage of our trainees go on to find work with the CPCS Red Card.

With various projects such as HS2, there has never been a better time to upskill and get your crane licence. With a facility like ours, there is literally no better place to do so.

Join us at our professional and modern training facilities in the heart of the Midlands and get the skills to progress your career in the construction industry. Easily accessible, we’re only 20 miles drive from Birmingham and just an hour from London on the train.
