LEEA Launches Practical Training Courses for Overhead Lifting Equipment Engineers

Posted on December 3, 2013

SAMSUNG DIGITAL CAMERALEEA (Lifting Equipment Engineers Association) has launched two new ‘hands on’ practical training courses covering the thorough examination of Electric Overhead Travelling and Portal Cranes, and Runways and Crane Structures. Led by LEEA’s team of specialist trainers, the five-day courses can be held at LEEA’s dedicated training centre in Huntingdon, which features a purpose-designed and fully functional electric overhead travelling crane, or any suitable premises worldwide.

Both courses are open to employees of LEEA member companies and will prepare delegates for procedures including thorough examination of equipment and the criteria for returning items to service. The Runways and Crane Structures Diploma is designed to complement LEEA’s existing theoretical training courses, and addresses runway beams, jib and mobile gantry cranes and structures. The Electric Overhead Travelling and Portal Cranes Diploma caters for delegates that already hold the LEEA Lifting Machines Power Diploma qualification.

The first Runways and Crane Structures Diploma will take place in Huntingdon in December, with the Electric Overhead Travelling and Portal Cranes course scheduled to start in early 2014.
