Heavy Lift Specialist - Training Heavy Lift Specialists

To avoid costly accidents and learn more about handling heavy lifts safely, sign up to Heavy Lift Specialist's popular Masterclasses.

Heavy Lift Specialist's Masterclasses are especially useful for i.e. Marine Warranty Surveyors, who know all about loading and securing heavy lifts on board of heavy lift vessels, but very little about transport of the heavy lift to the vessel, which is where accidents often happen. Freight forwarders and project engineers will also find the courses extremely valuable.

The Masterclasses focus on operators, supervisors, engineers, sales engineers, freight forwarders and everyone who wants to know more about handling heavy lifts in a safe and accident-free way.
