Per ASME, “Volume B30.17 includes provisions that apply to the construction, installation, operation, inspection, testing and maintenance of hand-operated and power-operated overhead cranes and monorail systems with either an underhung trolley or bridge, or both. These cranes and monorail systems shall support one or more hoists used for vertical lifting and lowering of freely suspended, unguided loads, and include top running and underhung bridge cranes, gantry cranes, traveling wall cranes, jib cranes, polar gantry cranes, portable gantries, other cranes having the same fundamental characteristics, and monorail systems including trolleys (carriers) and end trucks. Track sections and their support systems for monorail systems, runways and their support systems for underhung cranes, and runway rails for top-running cranes, are also within the scope of this Volume.
Provisions for similar equipment used for a special purpose, such as, but not limited to, non-vertical lifting service, lifting a guided load, or lifting personnel are not included in this Volume.”
Cranes and Monorails (With Underhung Trolley or Bridge)
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
