Crane Tech instructors have a passion to teach others in the material handling industry how to work safely, while providing a dynamic learning environment. Every trainer has a minimum of 15 years of hands-on field experience operating and/or inspecting cranes and heavy equipment, and most progressed to the position of supervisor or manager prior to becoming an instructor. Our instructors have undergone the most stringent testing and qualification process in the industry—passing an interview that includes a minimum of six-hours of technical content testing and spending 60 to 90 days under senior leadership learning to provide training in accordance with Crane Tech policies and expectations. In addition, all Crane Tech field personnel are professional in approach and demeanor; further ensuring the quality of service they provide is second to none.
The position of Field Manager requires the utmost attention to detail and a capability to resolve complex lifting issues. A job title not easily achieved, and held by only a handful of trainers since 1977, it is certainly appropriate for Jeff Ellis. See more
