Hoist Course Overview:
To provide thorough practical and theoretical construction plant training in operating a mechanical hoist (either passenger/goods, good or both).
As one of only a few companies in the UK that offer CPCS Hoist certification we have operators travelling from around the country (especially from London) to attend hoist training with us.
We are ideally located for individuals travelling to us with a train station only a few minutes away. We can also arrange transport from the train station to our centre if required.
The CPCS Code for this course is A20.
Upon completion of this course the delegates will be able to:
- Describe the nature of this sector of industry and their role and responsibilities as a plant/equipment operator.
- Name and explain the purpose of principle hoist components, the basic construction, controls and terminology.
- Confirm competency in line with the manufacturer’s requirements as per the operators handbook, other types of information source and the relevant regulations and legislation.
- Check the stability, alignment and all-round safety before use.
