With HIAB Truck Crane training provided by Atlas Polar, you’re going to feel confident in knowing that you or your operators are safe in the handling of your equipment, plus you’re going to get the best performance that the crane has to offer. Let’s take a look at how you can improve your crane performance while achieving accreditation.

Getting familiar with the HIAB Truck Crane

As a Customer of Atlas Polar, you can feel good about your purchase because we make sure you feel comfortable with the equipment’s features and capabilities. Then added to this we offer a half day orientation training to give you a working knowledge of all the technical aspects, safety features, and the performance it is capable of.

Gaining Experience:

You or your operators are going to begin with gaining their experience on the work site. This is where you start to get to know the equipment under the direction of senior operators.

Atlas Polar Training:

As soon as you or your operators have 40 hours of on the job experience under your belt, you’re ready for the one day training and certification that we have waiting for you. All you need to do is book a seat in the next available course. Then it’s simply a matter of showing up with your crane and safety equipment, including a hard hat and safety boots.  This course is only going to take you or your operator off the job for one day, but is going to provide the theory on safety and general operation of the crane.  All operators in training are expected to complete the written, assignment and practical sections that make up the course. The day of training will be simulated as to an average day on the job. At the successful completion of the course, you or your operator will walk away feeling confident and much more productive.


Crane operators who meet the criteria of the course are awarded with a diploma to proudly place on your wall, as well as a laminated wallet sized accreditation card to be carried. The certification has no expiry but we like to recommend to you as our client, that you or your operators come back to us every three years for a refresher course.

The Benefits:

Aside from gaining the necessary certification required by law for you and your operators, this training has many other benefits to it, which are really important for you as the crane owner and your operators.

It provides the confidence to operate more efficiently.
