Frequently Asked Questions

Have a question about online lift operator training?
WHAT DOES EACH ONLINE CLASS COVER?

A specific table of contents per course can be viewed under the image to your left. Generally speaking, though, each course covers the following: 1. Overview of the Course/Introduction to the Equipment 2. Anatomy including pre-shift inspections 3. Stability Principles 4. Common Hazards/Accident Profiles 5. Safe Operation 6. Rigging and Hand Signals (for crane courses only).

HOW LONG IS THE COURSE?

Trainees go at their own pace, but in general each class (including the exam) takes anywhere from 1.5 to 2 hours. We recommend planning for two or more so you don’t end up rushing through the exam.  More experienced operators are likely to finish in less time.

IF WE BUY OR LICENSE THE ELEARNING COURSES FOR USE ON OUR OWN LMS, CAN YOU CUSTOMIZE THEM FOR US?

CAN I CUSTOMIZE THE CLASSES?

Your business’s learning portal can be completely customized for your employees including colors and logo. Additionally, if you purchase our courses outright to be used on your own company LMS (learning management system), you also get the right to rebuild them and customize them to meet your own needs. If you have Adobe Captivate, which we use to build our courses, customization is even easier.

ARE SCORM/TIN CAN OPTIONS AVAILABLE FOR USE ON OUR OWN COMPANY LMS?

All of the online courses are designed to be SCORM-compatible and can be easily uploaded to your company’s current SCORM-friendly LMS. You can license their use annually or purchase them outright. Licensing or purchasing them outright does not, however, give you the right to resell or distribute our courses to parties other than those whom you are training.

IF I PASS THIS CLASS AND EXAM CAN I TAKE MY CERTIFICATION AND GET A JOB ANYWHERE?

See “Does this course certify me?” This will depend on your employer. Remember, it is their responsibility to see that you are trained and if there is ever an accident, it is they who will have to prove to OSHA that they trained you sufficiently. Because of this, while some smaller businesses may simply accept your certificate and a copy of your test, more often than not they will require you to go through their own training program. This is their right to do so. It is their further responsibility to train you in accordance with the job, site, equipment, etc. Having said that, we have fielded many calls from potential employers who wanted to learn more about the classroom portion of the training we offered. After hearing our explanation, they accepted the online class as satisfying the classroom portion of the required training and proceeded to do their own practical.
