Providing peace of mind through expert supervision.
Global deployment of an expert team to oversee procedures and ratify the execution of approved lifting plans. Includes world-class mentoring and coaching throughout critical lifts, as well as real time process adjustments.
Critical lifts are defined as those lifts that involve any of the following:
- A lift that exceeds 75 percent of the rate capacity of the crane.
- A multi-crane pick.
- Where damage significantly delays a project.
- Lifting of personnel.
- When rigging personnel are below the suspended load.
- Where damage compromises the safety of the facility.
- Loads that are not in view of the crane operator.
- Hazardous substances.
- Where the load is very expensive or irreplaceable.
- New or infrequently performed lifts.
"Where the margin for error is non-existent, it pays to have an expert providing the reassurance of a successful lift."Larry Kime, CICB Technical Advisor

All of these lifts, if performed incorrectly, have the potential to cause immense damage in one way or another.

Our site has been using CICB for a number of years to train and maintain certification for our crane operators. They exhibit an extensive background in the crane industry and their approach to training is very thorough and comprehensive. CICB’s professional instructors are highly dedicated and motivate everyone in the class to strive for excellence. The material is well-organized and the training is presented in a clear and concise manner. The classroom instruction and actual hands-on training go beyond our expectations. Our employees leave the class with a better understanding of crane operation, their capabilities, and job safety.”
This class was one of the best I have ever coordinated for our employees! Jason was, by far, the best instructor I have ever seen present an extremely technical course. His personality was perfect for the audience and made him very relatable. His technical proficiency was exemplary! He is completely capable of and, for the most part, did teach the entire class without referring to the slides or reference material. He also went way above and beyond in his commitment to ensuring the students not only learned but retained the material and stayed late into each evening to assist those requiring additional assistance. The employees could not say enough great things about Jason's skills and commitment to learning. We now have 10 employees trained to operate our cranes and, even though the majority of them do not work together, a group of employees that overcame some adversity and became a cohesive team. They are begging me to bring the CICB back!”
The Instructor Larry Kime is absolutely one of the best instructors I have ever had, and I have a degree in mechanical engineering. Larry’s knowledge both written and practical is current and accessible. I would recommend Larry to a new beginner or someone that has been in the lifting industry their whole career
