If you would like to have a career as an overhead crane operator, you will…
Well trained and certified crane operators are always in great demand which is surprising in a way considering they are amongst the highest paid heavy equipment operators in the workplace.
Crane operators control either fixed cab and swing cab mobile hydraulic cranes. Fixed cabs are, as the name suggests, cabs that are fixed to the crane’s bodies. The boom is independent of the cab. Most small mobile cranes fit into this category. Swing cabs have a cab that sits on a turntable like structure and can swing through 360 degrees following the cranes boom.
In many states it is now a requirement to be certified before commencing employment as a crane operator. You can only be certified if you pass both a written and practical assessment.
