We provide Overhead Bridge/Gantry Crane Courses at our Training Centre

The Crane used for the training is a KONE 5 tonne Overhead Bridge Crane – Pendant controlled.

By using our Training Centre this would elevate the need for on-site training which will inevitably would lead to production stoppages, downtime and delayed operations, which is frustrating and can be damaging to your business.  However, we can still provide the same on-site training standards at your site.
