Crane operators linguistics, are responsible for moving heavy objects at construction sites, sea ports and manufacturing companies. Operators are expected to safely and efficiently operate heavy machinery, which requires great focus and skill.

Crane Operator Education Requirements

Generally, crane operators must have a high school diploma or GED certificate. In rare cases, a company may hire an individual without these qualifications. Certification and licensing is required in most states to operate a crane. To prepare for certification, operators often complete an apprenticeship program. These programs combine on-the-job training with classroom learning. Several trade and vocational schools also offer training programs to help potential operators prepare for certification tests. To qualify to take the certification exams, prospects must be at least 18 years of age and in good health. These exams include both a written test and a practical examination. The results of the practical exam are due within 12 months of the successful completion of the written exam.

Crane Operator Salary

The median annual salary of crane operators is $31,530 per year. For unionized operators that specialize in large commercial projects, such as skyscraper construction, yearly pay can be well into the six-figure range.
