Demag 2017 training course programme: safe crane operation

  • Focus on comprehensive safety training courses
  • Crane operator training courses at fixed prices
  • On-site training at the customer’s premises

Demag. Training. Safety. This is the motto for the 2017 training course programme offered by Demag Service. The programme covers 76 pages with some 70 scheduled training courses that will be held at the Wetter and Wiesbaden locations. New items added to the programme include safety training courses for the operation of crane equipment and a product training course specially designed for the recently launched Demag Dedrive Pro 880 frequency inverters.

Carsten Wittmer, Senior Manager Training at Terex Material Handling: “Professional training courses help to reduce industrial accidents and liability risks. That is why we have placed an even greater focus on safety-relevant topics for our 2017 training course programme. We help our customers to operate and maintain their cranes and hoists safely and, in this way, contribute towards the long-term success of their business.”

Operator and product training courses 

Besides safety-specific training modules, Demag Service offers a tried-and-tested range of product and operator training courses. Product training courses range from the maintenance and repair of four generations of Demag rope hoists to commissioning and programming of parameters for the new Dedrive Pro 880 frequency inverters.

Customer training courses for individual needs 

In addition to the scheduled training modules at the training centres in Wetter and Wiesbaden, Demag Service also offers customer training courses that can be tailored to meet individual needs. Above all, these include standard offerings to train crane operators at a fixed price. On-site training courses particularly enable customers to benefit from minimum staff time away from the workplace. A further advantage: the practical exercises can take place direct on the same crane equipment which is later to be used by the trained employees.

Qualification of Demag service technicians 

Every year, more than 2,000 participants are trained at locations in Germany alone. Besides many customer training courses, Demag Service also uses its training centres to qualify its own employees. Carsten Wittmer: “Workplace and process safety are also the top priority for our own service technicians. For this reason, we also place great emphasis on training courses to ensure that our teams are qualified with reference to products and safety.”
