The best techniques and practices for lifting operations, in accordance with national and international standards.

Increasing demand for cargo hauling services and consequently by hand labor specialist for related activities, make it necessary to train professionals who can effectively meet this demand. Otherwise, it increases the risk that operations, which is totally undesirable.

Who is it for
All directly or indirectly involved in lifting and moving loads with terrestrial telescopic crane operations: operational managers, engineers, technicians, estimators, designers, crane operators, supervisors, engineers and safety technicians.

Provide fundamental knowledge to the student on key stages of reading development, procurement, receipt and inspection of rigging plans for operations with a telescopic crane on land, the usual charges.

100% of our professors are engineers with graduate degrees in engineering and extensive experience in the area.

Coordination and teachers
The technical coordination of the course is made by Leonardo Roncetti engineer, master’s and PhD in lifting operations from COPPE-UFRJ. All our teachers are civil or mechanical engineers with graduate degrees in engineering and extensive experience in lifting area.
