Welcome to New England Crane School

We provide crane-related safety training and certification programs at your location or at one of ours, including:

Your Location or Ours

Our public classes are held seasonally from late fall until spring 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.

Register for public classes or get more details on our registration page here. For pricing and information on onsite classes, call us at 603-790-8264 or send an email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

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.

What’s New

Got rookies?

Did you know we have a "rookie class" now?  This is a five-day class aimed at entry-level boom truck operators who are already working for a company that owns and operates cranes.  We get them started, and if they aren't ready for their practical exam that week, we send them back to you to get some seat time and then test them onsite when they're ready.  Visit here for upcoming classes or email This email address is being protected from spambots.

Jave is New England Crane School's longest-standing client. He has been working on his "under 21 tons" certification for three years now, but due to the unfortunate lack of opposable thumbs, he has not yet passed his practical exam. He takes advantage of our policy of allowing exam re-take candidates to attend future classes free of charge, so look for him in the back of the classroom this season.
