STEP TWO

Choose the Right Course

For Employees

As an employer, it is essential that each of your employees is current on all required licensing and certifications. Failing to do so can mean serious consequences for your business. More importantly, if your employees do not have the proper training and crane operator certification, it is much more likely that they will be involved in a work place accident.

We are equipped to host classes nationwide and internationally, which means you don’t have to go anywhere – we come to you. Classes can be hosted at your very own place of business, making it both convenient and simple to plan.

For Yourself

The workplace is more competitive than ever, so it is important that you make yourself look as appealing as possible to potential employers. One way that you can do this is by coming to them with as many certifications and classes under your belt as possible.

Whether you are interested in classes for you employees or for yourself, all you need to do is choose the classes and then decide where you want the class or classes to be held. Nationwide Crane Training will come to you with our qualified instructors and, in many cases, with our own equipment. All you need to do is give us a call and we’ll handle the rest.

STEP THREE

Complete Registration

We already have a number classes scheduled for the summer. Joining is as simple as filling out a registration form. You can also request that a new class be set up during the summer months. Of course, there are a few forms that will need to be completed, but we have worked hard to make the process as simple as possible.

Give us a call today at 877-NCT-CRANE (877-628-2726). You will be assigned a consultant who will make registering for crane operator certification classes and other safety classes nearly effortless!

Nationwide Training Goes International

Nationwide Crane Training is proud to announce that we will now be providing crane operator certification training internationally and to military personnel.  We are currently expanding our Mobile Crane Programs to the following countries:

  • Canada
  • Bahamas
  • Israel
  • Mexico
  • Dubai
  • Saudi Arabia
  • Brazil

NCT has helped thousands of operators gain the qualifications and/or certifications that they need in order keep up with the newest OSHA regulations. Even if such regulations do not exist in a particular country, safety should always be a priority. Studies show that certified crane operators have fewer accidents than those who are not certified.

We are thrilled to be able to work with operators in foreign countries and to provide the same standard of care and training that we do on American soil. As happy as we are to be training operators overseas, we are even more excited about the chance to work with the brave men and women of our military. Military men and women perform many jobs while serving this great country, and it is important to make sure that they have the best and most complete training possible.

Nationwide Crane Training will be working with military equipment operators to help them earn the certifications required to make sure that they are ready to operate their equipment in the safest possible manner.

NCT offers the following international crane operator certifications:

  • Mobile Crane Operator Certification
  • Tower Crane Operator Certification
  • Overhead Crane Operator Certification
  • Articulating Crane Operator Certification
  • Rigger (Certified or Qualified)
  • Signalperson (certified or qualified)
  • Overhead (certified or qualified)

As mentioned, we help U.S. operators keep up with all current OSHA requirements. Some jobs may require qualification rather than certification, and we can handle that as well. We work with every participant to make sure that they have all of the tools needed to obtain the qualification or certification needed.

We try to make our classes fun while providing all of the necessary training. We make it easy by not only training, but also administering the required tests, including both written and practical.

While the requirements may be different for overseas operators, what will not change is the standard of care that we provide to every client and every participant. Your goal for your operators is the same as our goal for your operators: to provide training and help them pass the required testing. We will do whatever it takes to make that happen.

Our instructors come from a variety of backgrounds including military, FEMA , fire department, crane operators and OSHA. That means that our instructors understand all aspects of just about any industry that may use our services. Our caring and knowledgeable instructors are one of the reasons that we have one of the highest pass rates in the industry.

Whether we are training operators in Portsmouth, Virginia, Israel or on any military base around the world, Nationwide Crane Training’s commitment to excellence is the same.

If you want more information about how Nationwide Crane Training can help provide crane operator certification training for your operators, call us at 877-628-2726.
