Frequently asked questions

Is there a minimum age requirement for completing Gantry Crane operator training?
With the exception of Lift Truck operators, there is no minimum age outlined in any UK legislation for plant or lifting equipment operators.

Lift Truck operators in the UK must be over the minimum school leaving age (except in docks where they must be at least 18 years old).

You can find out more here: HSE Workplace Transport FAQ

Is there an upper age limit for completing Gantry Crane operator training?
Do I receive an Gantry Crane licence when I complete this training?
There is no such thing as a license as such, for any piece of lifting equipment in the UK.

The term ‘licence’ suggests a document issued from a governmental or other constituted authority to operate an Gantry Crane. No such authority exists; there are only accrediting bodies and training providers who operate independently of the HSE or any other government organisation.

Successful candidates do receive a certificate and photo ID card, sometimes referred to as an Gantry Crane ticket; this provides evidence that the candidate has completed training and is certified to use the equipment as outlined on the Gantry Crane certification.
