Cranemasters was started in 2007 after the founding team realized, through many years of experience as Overhead Crane Technicians, that there was a need for better crane operation and rigging practices. Their business, and reputation, has been built on their genuine interest in their customers needs. Not only does Cranemasters provide training, but they continue to support their customers by providing them the information they need to stay compliant with the current crane and rigging standards.

Cranemasters now trains an average of 3000 students a year. Their difference is hands-on, interactive and effective training.

Our fully trained instructors can visit your facility to directly mentor and coach your employees on positive/corrective rigging practices and overhead crane operation. Our experience shows that one-to-one coaching effectively corrects and enhances rigging practices. The student relates to this method of instruction as it pertains directly to their type of work and equipment being used.
