3.5-Day / 5-Day Bridging Courses / Refresher Course (Crawler Crane)


Course code: 44048 | 44051 | 44015

3.5-Day / 5-Day Bridging Course / Refresher Course (Crawler Crane) 


The eligibility for registration of crane operators has always been based on skill and competency. To facilitate the need for training in other crane types, a registered crane operator of a particular crane must attend & pass a bridging course if he intends to operator another type of crane. The list of bridging courses below will prepare existing operators to learn and operate another type of cranes in a shorter time instead of attending the full course. These short courses will also provide relief to the industry/companies who may face shortage of the relevant type of crane operators.


The 3 ½ -day and 5-day bridging courses comprises theory lesson, hands-on practical session and half-day assessment. The topics to be covered are as follows:

a) Safety requirements and operation for various types of crane
b) Principles and characteristics of mobile/tower crane
c) Interpreting load capacity chart
d) Field exercises


3 ½ -day Bridging Course (Crawler Crane, Code: 44048):
Registered Mobile Crane (off road rough terrain) or Mobile Crane (Truck Mounted) operators

5-day Bridging Course (Crawler Crane, Code: 44051):
