Become the resident crane guru at your company – with this certification, you’ll be able to teach crane operation to others. In this very hands-on course, best practices for instructing trainees in safety, maintenance, operation and more are covered in detail.


In the late 1990s, CraneWerks noticed that the American crane industry was in trouble. Big overseas companies were making huge inroads into the US market by setting up their own sales networks. Their seemingly unlimited resources and capabilities made it increasingly difficult for independent US dealers to stay competitive.

Against that backdrop, CraneWerks was founded in 1997 with a vision: give independent American dealers a chance to compete in their own backyard by giving them the opportunity to say “Yes” to all their customers’ overhead material handling needs.

Giving Back

The things we do in life send echoes—echoes that frequently outlive us. Roger Graham was a member of the CraneWerks family for 18 years. He was an extraordinary, giving man whose deeds and words sent a lot of echoes down the ages. He won’t soon be forgotten by anyone who met or worked with him.  The Roger Graham Scholarship Fund is awarded annually to a deserving local high school senior heading to a trade school.
