One of our instructors, Randy Bucher, recently got the honor of sitting in Bigge’s 125D, an A-Frame Derrick crane with 1,520 ton capacity.
This derrick crane has a stationary counterweight of 5,600 tons. The crane runs on a track around the counterweight providing 360° operation. The twin boom length is 560 ft and requires 2-1/2 inch cable.

Open Enrollment classes are for those that wish to come independently or for companies that are sending a smaller number of students. These programs are held around the country at scheduled times during the year. Hands-On training is conducted at our headquarters near Orlando, Fla. This instruction helps build students’ confidence and competency for future job tasks.
OSHA standards require either qualification or accredited certification. Our three or four day training programs will accomplish either or both. We will test you for qualification if you operate in general industry or prepare you to take the CIC nationally accredited certified operator testing. We believe that this training saves lives.
