Overhead Gantry Crane/ Jib Hoist Training

An overhead gantry crane, commonly called a bridge crane, is a type of crane found in industrial environments. An overhead crane consists of parallel runways with a traveling bridge spanning the gap. A hoist, the lifting component of a crane, travels along the bridge.

Gantry Crane training courses last between 1-2 days depending upon the requirements of the operator, developing essential skills such as company machine operation, health and safety, and accepted good practice.
