Manitowoc Crane Care’s state-of-the-art training facility at its Shady Grove, Pa., U.S., facility now offers a complete range of tower crane training programs. The training program is a direct response to customer demand, and Manitowoc Crane Care is now able to offer a level of tower crane training not available elsewhere in the United States.
Robert Hund, executive vice president of Manitowoc Crane Care, said improved productivity is just one of the benefits of a professionally trained staff.
The first tower crane training course is Potain Level 1, a general class which students can take only after passing a prerequisite e-training course. After this, they can move on to the more detailed courses. Manitowoc Crane Care offers 4½-day courses in climbing, erecting and dismantling where students study both “crew member” and “crew lead” roles in each discipline.
The latest aid to on-site training is a Potain MDT 178 topless tower crane located close to the classrooms at Shady Grove. Having the crane on-site helps crews understand the processes necessary to get maximum efficiency from crane operations. Training courses for self-erecting cranes are also available.
