Picker Training in Fort McMurray Alberta

When it comes to picker training in Northern Alberta, right in the middle of one of the worst polar vortex’s on record…well you say yes and dress for the situation.   Well when the call for knuckle picker training comes in January of 2021, you don’t say “it’s too cold outside”, you ask if there is a large shop available and trust in the process. The old song sung at Christmas, “Oh the weather outside is frightful…”, does NOT come anywhere close to how bone chilling and equipment damaging these climates are.  But they don’t need to be and we show the folks just how to deal with the equipment side at least. Luckily for me and the 12 operators who

Is Picker Training Mandatory?

In Alberta, many people often ask us if  “certification” equals “qualification,” and, if not, what the difference is. The main difference is the level of testing required. Qualification is done by the employer (think along the lines of competency), and may or may not involve formal testing; It is at the discretion of the employer’s qualified evaluator. Certification requires third-party testing to provide a consistent and accurate means to determine a person’s technical knowledge and hands-on skills related to the task. If you would like to know more or have more questions, such as: “Is picker training mandatory?”, or “do I have to recertify my picker operators every 3 years?”  All great questions and we get that a lot.

Do You Need Crane Training?

For Crane Training in Alberta, Saskatchewan or NWT, actually all across Canada we have a CSA “Standard” that each Province in Canada will take it’s own “standard” from to develop respective OH&S standards for. While there is no “laws” per-se as we are always asked about in many phone calls, there is the minimum standard required to provide specific training for specific tools.   Did you know that OH&S officers have the power to charge you or your operator with a criminal offence if warranted.  If that doesn’t get one thinking nothing truly will. A crane gets no more specific to lifting than does a Rigid 300 power thread unit to…well threading pipe, it simply doesn’t.   Some of the training that
