For pricing and information on onsite classes, call 802-557-0583 or email

Your Location or Ours

Our public classes are held in locations throughout northern New England including Montpelier, Burlington, Concord, Portsmouth and Portland.  We are also available for onsite classes and private consulting at your location anywhere in the U.S. throughout the year.

Our training classes are taught by experienced, NCCER- and NCCCO-certified crane operators who understand the practical realities and challenges of working safely and effectively on crane sites. Using a combination of instructor lectures, participant discussions, videotaped scenarios and hands-on practice, we go beyond the textbook and teach you what you really need to know, whether your focus is safety improvement, OSHA compliance or both.

Slide 1

“Every time my company has one of our customers take part in one of their NCCER courses it goes as smooth as it can…Not only do I feel the process is very professional but my customers feel the same.”

– Sean Kelly, President of Citefly

Slide 2

“We have had a countless number of our own employees and subcontractors attend New England Crane School’s trainings and have received only positive feedback on the instructors and course content.”

– Krista McCullough, Corporate Safety Manager, Methuen Construction


Jave was New England Crane School's longest-standing client. He worked on his boom truck certification for several years, but due to the unfortunate lack of opposable thumbs, he never passed his practical exam. He took advantage of our policy of allowing exam re-take candidates to attend future classes free of charge, however, and was often seen in the back of the classroom. He told us that it was the best thing about our operation, besides the crumbs that other students dropped on the floor from their lunches.
