What does the course look like?  

Our classes are divided into two main parts: theoretical and practical. In the practical part, we learn to use all mobile crane systems on practice equipment. Theory, on the other hand, requires attending lectures that introduce everything you need to know about the equipment on which the trainee is working.  

In our classes we teach:   

  • equipment hydraulics and electronics,  
  • the correct and economical handling of equipment at the workstation,  
  • workstation preparation,  
  • equipment review,  
  • working in different conditions,  
  • everything to do with UDT,  
  • equipment category,  
  • required formalities,  

Final examination 

Completing our course does not mean you are qualified and able to work. First of all, you still have to pass a state examination before the Technical Inspection Commission. The examination, like the training, consists of a theoretical and a practical part. Our training always takes into account all applicable requirements for its completion.  

Courses - location  

All courses are held at the company's headquarters in Warsaw and regional offices throughout Poland. We take into account the possibility of holding classes at the client's premises. The course may be closed or open. Price and date depend on the interest in a particular training course. More information is available on our website.

Completion of the course

Completion of the training course ensures the acquisition of all the skills necessary to operate mobile cranes. The graduate must be able to handle work in a variety of conditions without difficulty, be familiar with the construction and technical parameters of the equipment, be able to detect and rectify simple faults and know how to use the equipment safely. These skills should make it easier for him or her to find work as a mobile crane operator in a wide variety of industries. 

Requirements for trainees 

Candidates for the course must:  

  • be at least 18 years old,  
  • obtain a medical certificate to confirm that you can practise the profession in question,  
  • have a minimum of primary education. 

Mobile cranes - definition 

A mobile crane is a crane built on a typical suitably reinforced truck chassis or a specially designed mobile chassis, driven by one or two engines, only one of which is the so-called drive motor. Mobile cranes are mainly used in the construction industry for the assembly of industrial enterprises, and are used for transport and loading work in workshops, ports, warehouses, transport depots, etc.  

Design of mobile cranes 

The truck crane consists of winches and a pivoting boom, attached to a rotating base (column), which allows the load to be raised and lowered and transferred by rotating the base and controlling the arm. The machine can operate in two modes: transport and hoisting. In the latter mode, the frame is usually raised on extendable supports attached to the machine to ensure stability.

Mobile cranes are differentiated according to the type of drive:  

  • combustion-mechanical drive,  
  • diesel-electric drive,  
  • diesel-hydraulic drive. 

In turn, depending on the type of platform on which the crane is installed, we distinguish:  

  • wheeled crane, 
  • off-road crane,  
  • mobile crane, 
  • crawler crane. 

Advantages of mobile cranes 

A mobile crane is a piece of equipment best suited to work at height that requires heavy loads to be transported. With equipment such as mobile cranes, it is easy to transport, load and unload all the components necessary for the work. A self-propelled crane for construction applications, with a suitable reach range, can also be used in the assembly of demanding structures and during renovation work. The long outriggers, high lifting capacity and wide range of equipment and safety features provide a high degree of flexibility and cost-effectiveness not offered by other types of equipment. 

Technical specifications

Crane weight - the dead weight of the crane with counterweight and main boom. 

Reception - the horizontal distance from the axis of rotation of the rotating part of the crane to the vertical axis of the loading device. 

Crane capacity - the maximum load for which the equipment is designed and for which the manufacturer guarantees correct operation. For cranes, the maximum capacity is taken at the smallest permissible boom length or span. The lifting capacity does not include the weight of the base and hook. 

It should be noted that the lifting capacity of a crane depends on:  

  • Extension lengths,  
  • boom lengths,  
  • boom angle,  
  • type of rigging,  
  • crane support.  

Lifting height - the vertical distance from the crane's axis of alignment to the support surface of the loader when it is in its top operating position. 

The moment of lifting - A value which defines the capacity of a crane to move loads of a specific weight, taking into account the variation of the lifting capacity with the span. The lifting moment is to be understood as the weight of a specific load that hangs on a specific span of the crane.  

Lowering depth - The vertical distance from the crane's position plane to the loader at its maximum downward position. This depth can be increased by the height of the load and the length of the suspension.  

Swivel angle - As a rule, truck cranes have the ability to completely rotate the boom. This can only be limited by the load in question. 


What are the characteristics of mobile cranes?

Mobile cranes are heavy industrial equipment consisting of a boom ending in a hook, attached to a truck. They are used for specialised transport work in locations such as construction sites.

Do I need to have a vocational qualification to join the course?

No, you only need to have at least an elementary education to take part in the training.
