Lorry Loader Training

Our Lorry Loader Training Courses

Specialist Lorry Loader Courses

A lorry loader (Hiab) is a Hydraulic powered articulating crane which fits directly onto the chassis of the lorry. A large number of lorries and trucks now have some form of Lorry Loader for ensuring the lorry’s ability to unload without the need for additional lifting equipment.

Accredited lorry loader training ensures that operators are fully qualified to operate a lorry loader and are aware of the daily maintenance and checks that are necessary to ensure their safe operation.
