Mentor Invest in New Courses & Launch Excavator with Slug Loads

11th March 2021

The last 12 months have been a strange and challenging time for training providers. Many customers suspended all face-to-face training and although we have taken some courses online and put in a range of procedures to ensure business critical training could continue in line with government guidance, training delivery has greatly reduced.

Our operations and learning and development departments have taken this time to work closely together behind the scenes to develop an array of new training courses for 2021 for the benefit of their customers, with their most recent course being finalised this January -
Excavator with Slung Loads.

The launch of this course comes in response to the demand from many customers in the utilities and civils industries who use an excavator to lift, move and place slung loads as opposed to hiring a crane. The 1-day course aims to provide excavator operatives with the skills, knowledge and understanding needed to safely operate an excavator to sling and position suspended loads.

The course can be run as a standalone course or has the flexibility to be added to other courses and blended with their Slinging and Lifting course – particularly for those sites who do not have a specialist slinger assigned to preparing and setting the load prior to lift. Training will follow the latest industry guidance, current lifting legislations, and best practice.

We look forward to rolling this course out to our customers this year with the training transferring into many industries and environments. If you are interested in booking your Excavator with Slung Loads course or would just like to talk to our team, please get in touch – 01246 386900.
