Should you become a Crane Operator? 

Crane operators hold an adventurous job that allows them to build things that last while earning great wages. In fact, the average salary for crane operators is over $50,000 per year with veterans and those with specialized skills earning over $100,000. With thousands of cranes in operation across North America and a wave of older operators retiring, demand for new crane operators is soaring.
Yet breaking into this rewarding field requires proper training and certification. Without the right education, you won’t gain the skills and credentials needed to begin operating cranes safely and efficiently.

That’s where we come in.

At Dependable Crane School, we have spent many years training aspiring operators like you and launching crane operating careers. Our experienced instructors, modern equipment, hands-on training and job placement assistance give you everything you need to succeed in this high-demand profession. For those willing to put in the effort, a stable and lucrative career awaits you.
