If you would like to have a career as an overhead crane operator, you will…
The most valuable employees in any business are the ones that can multi-skill. These days, when employers are forced to lay off workers, the last to go are generally those that are multi-skilled. It makes sense, of course. If you have a truck driver, a mobile crane operator, and bulldozer operator, but you only have enough work to keep these three operators busy for a short period each week, the easy way out is to sack those three operators and to employ an operator that can operate each piece of machinery.
However, if you are skilled in all three areas then you will be the last to be dismissed. The employer can use you wherever needed thus keeping you busy all the time. Gaining skills in all three areas may seem daunting, yet it isn’t. If you’re a truck driver then adding mobile crane operator training to your skill set is fairly easy. Likewise, if you are a heavy equipment operator then adding a commercial drivers license is not that difficult. That is the first step – that provides you with two skill sets that are important to employers.
Of course, if you are already a mobile crane operator then you will already have your CDL so it’s only a matter of adding heavy equipment training to your skills list. We are currently in an environment where multi-skilled workers are being held in high esteem. They are an important asset to any business. From the workers point of view, they have always got a range of options when it comes to seeking employment.

If you are involved in just one of those areas, consider up-skilling and improving your employment chances.
