Rail-mounted (harbour) cranes - training for operators and maintainers

Harbour cranes are cranes used to move goods for loading and unloading. As their name suggests, they are usually used to work in seaports. Their design allows them to carry out several operations at the same time: they can lower or lift loads by rotating around their own axis, while also varying the inclination of the boom and moving along the coastline.
These are extremely helpful machines for loading and unloading cargo ships.

We can divide harbour cranes into two types in terms of their design:

  • 4 - articulated,
  • and cantilevered, with rope compensation.

In order to become an operator or maintainer, you must first obtain a licence that allows you to work.

Our training

Our company offers pre-training. With us, you will acquire the necessary theory and practically learn how to operate or maintain cranes in good technical condition.

Who is our training for?

Both individual clients and companies. The course can take place at our centre or at the client's premises. As a course candidate, you only need to meet a few simple requirements:

  • be at least 18 years old,
  • have a minimum of primary education,
  • demonstrate that there are no medical contraindications to working in the post, as documented by an appropriate doctor.

The training consists of theory and practice, and the framework lecture plan includes:

  • information on technical supervision,
  • construction and function of cranes,
  • all about proper operation,
  • health and safety regulations,
  • possible risks at work and how to prevent them,
  • detailed theory on the operation of cranes,
  • working under difficult conditions,
  • for maintainers: carrying out maintenance, keeping the machine in good working order and assessing this condition, maintainer's duties, dealing with and preventing breakdowns.

This is followed by practical exercises with the equipment, where the future operator learns how to work with and prepare for cranes, and the maintenance technician learns technical assessment and the use of maintenance substances (such as lubricants and oils).

TDT exam

After completing the training, the trainee can take an examination before the TDT board. This takes place at the workplace. You can also take the exam at our centre in order to be able to work with port cranes in the future. If you pass the exam (both theory and practical), you will be awarded your certificate, which is valid for five years from the date of passing the exam.
