Certex UK is a wire rope and lifting gear distributor, servicing, and training company, which offers remote and traditional training courses. The certification programmes cover LOLER (the British Lifting Operations and Lifting Equipment Regulations, 1998).

The seminar, offered at locations throughout the UK, includes crane rope inspection and discard criteria.

Ray Allen, who is chairman of the International Standards Technical Sub-Committee, will run the training. He has 20 years of experience as the lead trainer on Certex’s popular Wire Rope Examiner course, geared for those who are new to inspection.

Commenting on the target market for the course, Ray Allen said, “It is of upmost importance that anyone involved in the thorough examination and daily/weekly/monthly inspections of crane ropes should be fully aware of the revised discard criteria now in place. The seminar is ideal for those that have previously attended the Certex Wire Rope Examiners course and just need to be brought up to speed with the latest information contained in the revised standard.”
