Course Content

The online theory course refreshes the knowledge and application, for a trainee that already holds unit 3800 - Use a radio remote or pendant controlled gantry crane to lift and place regular loads. The course will refresh your knowledge on the safe operation of overhead crane and counts towards renewing your certification on the safe operation of an overhead crane for regular loads. On successfully completing the theory you will be issued a theory completion certificate. This certificate is a pre-requisite for the practical session and must be shown to the trainer.  


To complete the online theory of 3800 we recommend that trainees use a desktop PC or tablet. Trainees will need to feel comfortable navigating and using online courses to complete this theory.
