hoist operator course
3-day Course Outline
Taking our course will ensure that you are well prepared to handle the everyday duties that a certified hoist operator will encounter on the job.
Introduction to hoist operations along with a thorough power point presentation covering all regulations, laws, and daily checks that need to be performed. Students will be presented with many scenarios and examples of possible situations that arise daily on the jobsite, and what they need to do, and what NOT to do.
The second day of our course focuses on hands-on training, involving the actual operation of a hoist. Students will be given thorough instructions with the hoist itself and will be required to wear PPE whenever they go out in the hoist.
Final day of the course – Students will review material with the instructor before completing a practical exam on the hoist and a written multiple choice exam. Students are required to pass both exams in order to receive the declaration that confirms they have completed 21 hours of hoist operator training which Technical Safety BC requires each person to have before applying for certification.
