Capstan Hoist Operator

1/2 Day Capstan Hoist Operator – $495

The Capstan Hoist Operator course is an intensive 1/2-day program designed to help the employer meet OSHA requirements & recommended ANSI standards (A10.48). This course covers subjects such as Capstan Hoist History, Labels, ratings and Inspections, the different models of Capstan Hoists, Operation, Mounts and Anchorages. Our course is based off the AB Chance Hubbell Series 90 Capstan Hoist but it covers hazards and the operation of many different models of hoists. (Certification is valid for 2 years.)

The first portion of the day is spent in the classroom. A combination of lectures, videos, slides and equipment demonstrations are used to ensure that students understand hazards involved in using a Capstan Hoist.

The second portion of the day begins with field activities. After the field portion of the class the students will take a written exam and students must score 75% or better to pass the exam.
