 # # # # # # # #


Theoretical programme part 1
  1. Aptitude and responsibility
  2. Role with handling team
Technology of cranes
  1. Terminology and characteristics 
  2. Different versions and their methods of setting UP 
  3. Engines (operational principles) 
  4. Mechanisms (kinematic chain, operating principles and appropriate control)
  5.  Brakes, travel and speed limiters (operating principles and tests) 
  6. Electrical remote-control equipment (operating principles, safely functions tests and setting) 
  7. Hydraulic and pneumatic control equipment (operating principles, safety functions, tests and setting) 
  8. Steel wire ropes (installation. periodic checks. discard criteria) 
  9. Safety devices (operating principles: tests and setting) 
Theoretical programme part 2
Putting crane Into and out of service 
  1. Ground connections (jacking. rails, anchorage blocks) 
  2. Specific setting up (anchored or guyed crane, climbing inside the building)
  3.  Auxiliary equipment and accessories (for- example fly jib) 
  4. Electric power (dangers, protection systems)
  5. Hydraulic and pneumatic systems and fuels (dangers and precautions)
  6. Erection, putting into service, tests, dismantling, maintenance operations  
  7. Travel of the crane on site and on road
Use of Crane safety rules
  1. Load diagrams. reeving and crane configuration: selection procedure (optimum use) 
  2. Rated capacity limiters and indicators (operating principles and tests) 
  3. Forces acting on the crane (conditions in and out of service) 
  4. Stability of the crane (influence of various configurations)
  5. Influence of atmospheric and ambient conditions (for example low temperatures, build-up of ice, fog, wind, storm, lightning. dust, smoke, corrosive atmosphere) 
  6. Environment of the crane and its constraints [power lines, lines, prohibited or dangerous areas, other cranes, radio transmitters, air traffic (beaconing), noise or pollution limits]
  7. Start-up and shut-down procedures
  8. Prohibited or dangerous operations
  9. Limits to the use of cranes
  10. Inspection specific to crane
