The Derrick Crane Licence Course is designed for those personnel who wish to operate a Derrick Crane.
A derrick crane is a powered slewing strut-boom crane with its boom pivoted at the base of the mast. The mast can be either guyed (guy derrick) or held by backstays (stiff-leg derrick) and is capable of luffing under load. During this course, students will learn how to safely and correctly, inspect plant and equipment, operate the crane, transfer loads, and shut down and secure a crane.
This a comprehensive course and is provided “on site – on job”. Operators usually require 60 hours experience prior to formal assessment. On successful completion of the course participants will be able to apply for a Nationally recognised Worksafe licence from a state regulator.
This course may include some or all of the following delivery modes: classroom, online/eLearning, workplace or blended options.
