Excavator as a Crane

Designed predominately for our customers in the utilities and civils industries who use an excavator to lift, move and place slung loads as opposed to hiring a crane. The 1-day course aims to provide excavator operatives with the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to safely operate an excavator to sling and position suspended loads.

The course can be run as a standalone course or has the flexibility to be added to other courses and blended with their Slinging and Lifting course – particularly for those sites who do not have a specialist slinger assigned to preparing and setting the load prior to lift.

Training will follow the latest industry guidance, current lifting legislations, and best practice.

We also offer NPORS N100 Excavator as a Crane training course as an alternative route. See below for more details, or contact our team today.
