When it comes to rotators, there are no second chances. This course will teach you the mindset, math and methods to keep you and your equipment safe, the first time, every time.
Do you know how to calculate the safe distance to an overhead wire or underground gas line? How close your rotator can safely get to the edge of a 23-foot deep hole? How much cribbing is required under your outrigger legs to compensate for a 50,000 pound load?
This 2 day course teaches you everything you need to protect both people and equipment, including formulas for calculating ground pressure and outrigger compression loads. Students spend the morning in the classroom, then it’s out to the field to apply the theory and formulas to real-life scenarios, including properly attaching and lifting cement mixers, tractor-trailers and sea containers.
A WreckMaster rotator course is a risk management must-have for anyone who has a rotator in their fleet —or plans to add one in the future.
“The most common thing I hear from students is ‘Wow, I never knew there was so much to know about this piece of equipment.’ With a rotator, there are no do-overs.”
– Don Cerovski, WreckMaster rotator course instructor
If you have a rotator in your fleet, or plan to add one in the future, a WreckMaster rotator course isn’t just a good fit, it’s good business.
The only pre-requisite for the course is a state- or provincially-issued driver’s license.
Operators who have taken the 2/3 Foundations, 4/5 Advanced Techniques and 6/7 Heavy Duty Applications courses will have a jump start on the complex scenarios and calculations covered in this course. Experienced operators involved in heavy duty towing who haven’t taken any other WreckMaster courses will get a crash course (pun intended) in advanced techniques and calculations in this jam-packed day-and-a-half.
Duration: 2 days
Time: 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day
Price: $695.00 USD
Learn how to:
» Calculate safe distances to overhead and underground utilities in unusual circumstances
» Calculate safe distances from excavation areas and foundations
» Calculate compression loads on outrigger legs
» Select proper cribbing materials
» Properly level your truck, including understanding allowable tolerances
» Calculate your rated load lift capacity (RLLC)
» Use proper rigging to control the load that’s being lifted or moved
» Understand advanced rigging dynamics
» Properly attach and lift
All attendees receive a Rotator training package with workbook.
If you score 75% or higher on your Rotator exam, you’ll be considered a certified Rotator WreckMaster. Your certification is good for 3 years, and you can take any Rotator course for free to refresh your skills during that 3-year period.
