The crane operator trade in British Columbia is vibrant and crane operators are in demand. Well-trained, safety-conscious, professional crane operators are contributing to the stability and growth of BC’s economy across all sectors and in all areas of the province.

In British Columbia, an operator of a Mobile Crane, Tower Crane, Self-erect, or Boom Truck must be licensed by BC Crane Safety and hold a valid crane operator credential as outlined in WorkSafeBC OHS Regulation and Guideline 14.34.1.

“Crane operator certification is administered through the British Columbia Association for Crane Safety (BC Crane Safety). As the administrator, BC Crane Safety is responsible for the certification process; including application, assessment, quality assurance, and maintenance of the certification scheme. BC Crane Safety has the authority to issue crane operator certification in B.C.”
