The banksman and slinger preparation course deals with the use and supervision of cranes at sea. During the training, candidates will acquire the necessary knowledge and practical skills in handling, slinging loads and the safety behaviour to be observed when using the equipment. The requirements and competence are in accordance with ISO 23853:2018. 

Telescopic loader course 

Trolleys such as the telehandler are a very versatile piece of equipment. Thanks to its interchangeable attachments, we can completely change its function and use. We can easily transform the loader into a lift or even a working platform, and it can be used in any field of work. By taking the ISO 26676 training course, you will acquire the necessary knowledge and skills to work with this equipment. Successful completion of the exam will give you the authority to use the machine.
