What is TNT?

Qualified Crane Training has established the TNT Program to be an overhead crane training program which teaches crane-based curriculum with a focus on developing the inexperienced and strengthening the experienced technicians and managers.

The goal of the TNT is to educate Crane Service Technicians or Managers in the knowledge of overhead cranes in the areas of Safety, Mechanical, Electrical, and Regulatory Compliance. The knowledge and skills learned through the TNT Program, is required to operate, maintain, and repair electric overhead traveling cranes or manage those that do.

The TNT program consists of four distinct paths:

  • Crane Maintenance Technician – Electrical
  • Crane Maintenance Technician – Mechanical
  • Crane Maintenance Technician – Inspector
  • Crane Management – Safety and Regulatory compliance

Each course scheduled will be instructor lead participant centered training.

Each course will include a comprehensive student course workbook that is also a field guide to the topic being covered.

Each student must pass a written exam to successfully complete the program. In some cases, a practical exam is also required.

All students who complete a training class will receive a certificate of completion.
