Crane Inspection Awareness Training

AME’s industry-recognised Crane Inspection Awareness Training Course for crane inspectors and site managers.


What is Crane Inspection Awareness Training?

AME’s newly developed crane inspection awareness training course has been created to fill an existing void in Australia for the training of inspectors to meet their training competency requirements for crane inspections.

A recent search of the internet showed that there are very few if any specific crane inspection training courses available in Australia, so AME set about to correct this anomaly and developed their own Crane Inspection Awareness Training Course based on the extensive combined experience of AME’s Managing Director and Plant Inspectors.

Occupational Health and Safety Legislation in most Australian States’ reference the applicable Australian Standards which are mandatory to comply with.

What’s covered in the training?

The AME Crane Inspection Awareness Training Course covers the specific maintenance requirements for Bridge, Gantry, Portal and Jib Cranes (AS2550.3) and Mobile Cranes (AS2550.5), which typically consists of a minimum 12 weekly routine maintenance inspection and a 52-week periodic third-party inspection or more frequently depending on the crane usage.

All attendees will be issued a comprehensive training manual. At the completion of the training all participants will be issued with a Certificate of Training. Please note, this course will not make you a qualified crane inspector.

“Trevor’s knowledge was very good.
Lunch/Morning tea very good.
Bit too long in the afternoon – needs a break sooner.
Maybe split the course up a bit. Lifting equipment on another course.
The Legislation part could be condensed a bit.”
