Although Boom Cranes (also known as Knucklebooms) may appear similar to other types of cranes, they are important and unique in their own ways. The Articulating Boom Crane Operator Training program is comparable to the mobile crane course; however, it is specifically condensed into articulating boom cranes. This course is for beginners and experts alike, for there are significant differences between boom cranes and other mobile cranes. There are setup differences and load chart differences. All personnel attending this program will gain significant and useful skills and will leave with a stronger understanding and appreciation of the requirements and responsibilities of knuckle boom crane operators.

The two-day Articulating Boom Crane Operator program provides an excellent learning environment for General Contractors, Roofers, Sign Erectors, Block and Brick Distributors, Municipalities, and Electrical Workers.
