This course is a refreshing update to the many overhead crane videos out there. There are great visuals and clear instruction and information. I would have preferred more distinct short sections, but the material is completely adaptable and applicable to our training needs. Thank you for your good work in developing this video series.

This dvd is an excellent, easy to under stand basic training tool. Having been working with overhead cranes for over 22 years I would recommend this to any one. Graphics are fun to watch, does not bore you like the video of the 60's and 70's.

This DVD combines practical, easy to follow instructions while introducing OSHA standards without overwelming the novice. This DVD is the beginning of our overhead crane, hoist & sling training program.
