Novice Course

TL Training defines a ‘Novice’ as somebody who has no previous (or very limited) experience of using this specific truck type.

Our RTITB Novice Operator Course is designed to instruct up to a maximum of 3 delegates. The number of training days required depends upon the number of candidates.

The overhead gantry crane training course is often referred to as OC.

Pendant control – in which the crane is manoeuvred by a pendant control attached to the crane that is held at ground level by the operator.

Remote control – this is similar to pendant control system but the remote control is not attached to the crane, therefore the operator has more freedom to work from the optimum location.
