Embark on your journey into the world of lifting operations with our VVL Basic Training. This one-day course serves as a stepping stone for newcomers or a refresher for experienced workers seeking to renew their certification, with a focal point on fundamental lifting equipment. For individuals operating within factory environments, our VVL-H Training offers comprehensive insight into hand-held lifting equipment, empowering you to manoeuvre loads safely and autonomously.


If your responsibilities involve collaborating with crane operators, our ABVL Training will equip you with the expertise to adeptly hook and navigate loads. Moreover, for those honing their skills with an overhead crane, we provide specialised training tailored to your needs.


For professionals in the petrochemical, maritime, and industrial cleaning sectors, complement your VVL-H and ABVL Training with an SOG exam, aligned with SSVV guidelines, to formally validate your competencies.
