Offshore Crane Operator Level 1

TCS training courses are designed based on regulations and industry best practices aligned with relevant international standards and/or approved by appropriate industry accrediting bodies, as necessary.

The aim of TCS training courses is to ensure that all individuals have reached a recognized level of competence to enable them to work on-site more safely with reduced risk to themselves and others.

According to regulations, there is a need for organisations to ensure all employees are competent, especially in areas where high-risk activities take place.

“Plant Operator” training courses are carefully designed to meet the requirements of the modern industries including, but not limited to oil & gas, construction, chemical, shipbuilding, etc. Training courses covered under the “Plant Operator” category provide a different level of skills and competencies to employees involved in operating various lift trucks. AITT accredited plant operator training courses include operators for Forklift, Telehandler, Overhead Crane, Lorry loader, and many other lift trucks.

The courses are interactive and can be delivered in the language of your choice. Practical exercises and course materials are provided as per specific training requirements. The content can be localized to reflect the country or region where the workforce will operate.

To ensure that individuals have reached the required level of competency, they MUST successfully complete a training course and assessment. Successful candidates will then receive the certificate transferable worldwide. Individuals must renew their certificates based on the expiry date shown on the certificate to ensure their knowledge is up to date.
