Your sponsor/employer approves your logbook entries as you progress and, at the end of your training period, signs off on your logbook. This confirms that you have the relevant experience and can move on to the BC Crane Operator Assessment.
BC Crane Operator Assessment
The BC Crane Operator Assessment for these crane classifications consists of a written test and a practical test designed to evaluate an operator’s crane-handling skills. Apply at Fulford Certification when you are ready to start the assessment process.
Upon passing the written and practical tests, you will be designated a BC Crane Operator – Full Scope for the relevant crane classification.
