Requirements to obtain the licence for handling towers and cranes.
All crane operators must pass a physical examination and be declared fit for the certification. The physical examination must take place every three years. However, someone with a medical certificate from the Department of Transport issued in their country is exempt from the initial physical examination but is required to submit to one within two years. Part of this examination involves the potential crane operator passing a drug test.
Crane operators must take a written examination consisting of two parts before they can be certified.
The first part assesses their general knowledge of operating a crane. The second part concerns a special type of crane such as a crane with a lattice boom on caterpillars or a telescopic crane with a large or small arm.
The potential crane operator must pass both parts satisfactorily. If so, the applicant can be tested on and qualify for, simultaneously, all models comprising a mobile crane.
Crane operators must take an operation test that must be supervised by a training organisation or a qualified trainer.
During this test, the operator must demonstrate that they are competent to operate the crane based on the type and model in question.
The trainer has a list of operating techniques that the operator must perform to a satisfactory level with the aim of passing the test to obtain the certification, which will allow them to work as a Crane Operator.
