With the demand for expert training and knowledge increasing dramatically in the heavy rescue field, we are pleased to introduce a specific technical heavy lifting training course to our range of specialist training.

On completion of the course and having satisfied the aims and objectives, each delegate will have developed further skills and increased their knowledge in the field of heavy lifting.

Course Objectives

At the end of the course, the delegates will be able to: –

  • Apply lifting and stabilisation techniques
  • Demonstrate cribbing and safe cell techniques
  • Demonstrate primary and secondary lifts utilising chains
  • Demonstrate correct procedures for stabilising and controlled lift of overturned LGV’s
  • Describe the procedures and techniques for lifting larger transport such as trains

Course Criteria

The heavy lifting course is a 2-day addition to our popular Skills for Justice accredited Heavy Road Traffic Collision Instructor course and incorporates basic lifting of large transport, including primary and secondary lifting, creating safety cells combined with dynamic stability.

Using the knowledge and experience of our instructors, we combine their skills with the leading specialist manufacturers in the heavy rescue market, the course utilises a wide range of rescue equipment to achieve the lifting goals and reflects the different types of equipment that fire and rescue services currently carry on their specialist rescue appliances.
