If you are looking for light duty picker truck certification in Alberta you are at the right place.

We provide your company with certification for LIGHT DUTY picker truck operators in Alberta, Saskatchewan and other provinces only.  We don’t provide certification for any crane larger than 8-tons (Alberta standard), or 5.5 Tons in Saskatchewan.  

Our light duty Picker truck Certification in Alberta program is recognized by ALL major operators and other industries in Canada, as well as OHS and many insurance companies.

  1. Certification is required on ALL crane types lifting more than 2,000kg (first pick on the load chart), by OHS standards
  2. IF your picker lifts more than 8-tons in Alberta (the first pick on the load chart), you must be an indentured operator (apprentice or journeyperson), per Alberta boom truck standards.  You can read more about that HERE.
  3. IF you have a winch installed on your picker and the winch is capable of a single part line pull of 5-tons or more, you are required to have an indentured operator (apprentice or journeyperson), at the controls of the crane.  You can read more about that HERE.
  4. If you are a business owner and you are looking for picker truck certification in Alberta for your operators, please contact us HERE.
