Barney Shorter; CIA Certified Mobile Crane Trainer and CIC Authorized Practical Examiner
CIA: What training programs have you attended with Crane Institute (CIA)?
Shorter: Well I’ve attended the Train-the-Trainer program; I’ve done the operator training program and I’ve done the Practical Examiner Training.
CIA: Was the training on mobile cranes?
Shorter: Yes, mobile cranes.
CIA: Have you been trained on other equipment; overhead cranes, rigging?
Shorter: No overhead, no rigging, but I’ve gotten certified on every discipline from the 0-21 ton, 21-75 ton, over 75 ton, lattice boom carrier and lattice boom crawler so we can train just about everybody on any mobile crane.
CIA: As a CIA certified mobile crane trainer, have you taken advantage of the ‘Complete Package’ offer?
Shorter: Absolutely, I was in the training in the beginning of August last year, and I guess that’s 5 months ago and I’ve probably trained well over 130 people in 5 months, in every discipline; small, medium and large telescoping boom cranes and I’ve given practicals to just about everyone of those students.
