What do we offer?

In our training courses we present the necessary knowledge to work as a conservator of cranes floating. Our teaching staff are happy to answer any questions. Our trainees can therefore count on the individual approach of our instructors to every trainee. In addition, we provide training materials so that students can easily assimilate the knowledge discussed and prepare for the state examination.

Topics discussed in the lectures include: 

  • types and construction of cranes, 
  • types of slings and other crane components, 
  • maintenance of floating cranes,
  • job characteristics of the maintenance position, 
  • legislation and regulations, 
  • fire-fighting and Health and Safety

We also organise courses for floating crane operator qualifications. If you would like to find out more details, please contact us.

Final examination 

Once all the material has been covered, trainees take a state examination, which is supervised by a committee appointed by the Office of Technical Inspection. If the participant obtains the required number of points, he or she is awarded a certificate of qualification and entitlement to work as a floating crane maintainer. Such a certificate is valid for five years. After this time, you must renew your qualification in order to continue to work as a maintainer. This also applies to people who are operators of floating cranes.

Requirements for candidates: 

  • at least 18 years of age,
  • no health contraindications to work as a maintenance worker (medical certificate required),
  • minimum primary education.

UDT crane maintenance profession  

Maintenance of a machine is extremely important in its use. It is also essential to ensure that cranes remain in good condition and do not pose a danger to workers or those around them. It is important to look out for even the smallest damage to individual parts of the machine and, if necessary, repair or replace the broken component. Maintainers of various UDT machines, including floating cranes, are and will continue to be needed, and our course will prepare you for such an important and significant job. 

If you sign up for the floating crane maintenance course we organise, you can count on:

  • classes taught by qualified professionals who actively work as operators and maintainers, 
  • training materials including a database of sample exam questions, 
  • assistance with paperwork, 
  • individual approach to each student, 
  • coffee, tea, 
  • a pleasant atmosphere. 

Floating cranes - key information 

Floating cranes, or floating cranes, are subject to technical supervision. They are designed for use at sea, in ports or shipyards. They are used to transport and move heavy loads and goods. They have a tall arm that is attached to a steel floating platform. Some floating cranes are self-propelled, while there are also some that need a tugboat to move. There are two types of floating cranes: 

  • crane with fixed arm  - is simple to operate. It moves only forwards and backwards and by lowering and raising the slings. Its base is attached to the platform, so the operator has to move the whole platform to move the load to the other side; 
  • crane with slewing arm - can rotate around its own axis and has a 'load deck', which is primarily used for stacking and depositing loads. This type of crane is more difficult to operate, yet very functional and practical.

We train to be a maintainer of both types of floating cranes so that trainees are able to effectively take care of both the swivel arm and fixed arm crane in the future.
