Our Difference is hands-on, interactive and effective.

Most of our courses are conducted at customer sites, but Cranemasters does have training facilities available in Edmonton and Calgary.



Our portable classroom includes real cranes and rigging supplies to illustrate good, bad, and defective rigging.



Our fully trained instructors can visit  your facility to directly mentor and coach your employees on positive/corrective rigging practices and overhead crane operation.  Our experience shows that one to one coaching effectively corrects and enhances rigging practices. The student relates to this method of instruction as it pertains directly to their type of work and equipment being used.



All of the rules and regulations that govern the operation of cranes and rigging equipment can be overwhelming. We provide on-site Assessment and Gap Analysis services to ensure your equipment, policies, and workers are compliant.



Upon assessment of your company’s equipment and employees, we can develop specific policies and procedures for hoisting and rigging requirements.
