The future of the crane industry lies in sourcing and training people interested in construction and innovation. While most people think that the crane Industry consists of crane owners and operators, this industry employs people with a variety of skill sets including accountants, business managers, mechanics, administration staff and engineers – to name a few.

The ‘Construction Crane Operations Traineeship’ being offered in collaboration with TAFE NSW is an ideal way to begin a career in the crane industry. After six weeks, the trainee receives a ‘Licence to perform Dogging’ if eighteen years of age or over, so they can work and gain valuable experience onsite while earning an income.

The trainee can then go on to complete the full ‘Certificate Three in Construction Crane Operations’ which involves learning how to handle construction materials, planning work safely, operate elevated work platforms, dogging and basic rigging, driving a heavy rigid vehicle and operating a slewing mobile crane.

Australia is growing and to remain productive and efficient, considerable spending on infrastructure projects and prioritisation is happening now and will for some time into the future. Australia’s infrastructure needs are good news for the crane industry and provide ample opportunities for trainees.
