Licensed Crane Course in Sydney

Do you want to further your career by completing a crane course in or around Sydney? Our sophisticated infrastructure makes HRTA an excellent place to become qualified to operate a mobile crane. Our crane training in Sydney offers the perfect way to advance your high-risk trade skills and qualifications. You can safely work under Aussie law when you have the practical and theoretical knowledge you need to operate a slewing mobile crane.

What is a Slewing Mobile Crane?

A slewing mobile crane has a jib or a boom that rotates. The rotating turn-table section offers greater site access and slewing versatility. It can be anchored in place while the boom continues to operate in a 360° circle. Non-slewing cranes don’t have rotation joints, thus impeding your slewing range and ability.
