Enrolments Now Open for New Zealand Certificate in Cranes (Level 3)
Skills recently made some changes to the crane qualification to make sure it’s up to date and the best it can be.

With the construction boom in full force these changes have improved the qualification at a time where New Zealand needs more crane operators.

The New Zealand Certificate in Cranes (Level 3) qualification allows trainees to lift and place regular loads safely in a crane related to the strand they’re studying.

The available strands are:

  • Cab controlled overhead crane
  • Dogman
  • Pendant controlled overhead crane
  • Self-erecting tower crane
  • Truck loader crane

The training normally takes around 9 months, depending on the strand chosen.
