What is the difference between a crane school and apprenticeship?
Apprenticeships offered through trade unions take between 6400 to 8400 hours to complete, and they are designed to make an operator qualified. The California Crane School test preparation program intended to give candidates everything they need to pass their Written Exams, and give them the opportunity to take the Practical Exams. The class gets operators certified in the fastest, most efficient way possible. Taking the class won't make you a qualified crane operator, but it will put a certification card in your pocket. The rest is up to you.
