Last week Crane Institute of America conducted a 4-day Mobile Crane Operator training program which included hands-on instruction. The class was a full one with 19 students. That is why we encourage students to register as soon as possible to reserve their spot. It is truly a wonderful sight to see so many companies making safety a priority and we are honored to be a part of it.
Our Mobile Crane Operator training programs are an excellent preparation for those planning to take the CIC Nationally Accredited Mobile Crane Operator Written and Practical Certification Exams. We are pleased to say that most of the students in attendance last week made the plan to stay the extra day and take the certification exams. We would like to wish those students good luck on their practical and written exams!

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.
