The Association of Lorry Loader Manufacturers and Importers (ALLMI) accreditation is used to ensure dedicated training for students who need to become competent in Lorry operating.

ALLMI have three core aims:

  • Promote the safe use of lorry loaders.
  • Ensure that the Association is involved in the formulation of any legislation which affects the industry’s interests.
  • Promote compliance with training requirements embodied in current legislation.

Holding a HIAB operator qualification is not a legal requirement.

However, those who are required to use HIAB must have training and become competent in the use of the equipment.

When you receive your Certificate, this will mean that you are able to operate cranes up to 20 tonnes/meters.


Overhead Gantry

Overhead Gantry

Our overhead gantry training consists of many training competencies which you must complete. This ranges from the use of crane signals and communications to planning a lift appropriately.

Depending on your experience, courses range from novice training to refresher training courses.

Our Overhead gantry operator training is ITSSAR accredited, which means that the course provided is up-to-date and trusting.

Slinger Signaller


Slinger Signaller’s training revolves primarily around the responsibilities of operating a crane, with the use of effective and consistent cimmunication methods. These can range from recognised signalling, and guidance for loads.

Slinger Signaller is an ALLMI-accredited training course. Also delivered by ALLMI-accredited instructors, they will ensure that you obtain all the relevant knowledge to successfully pass your training.

HIAB Training Prices

The cost of your HIAB course will depend on the level of experience you have. For example, if you have no experience with lorry mounted cranes, then you will need to complete a novice course for the attachments you require.

However, if you already hold an operator’s licence, but haven’t completed training in over 3-5 years, then refresher training would be most suitable.

If you are experienced in the use of lorry mounted cranes, but have not got a valid operators card, then experienced operator training would be best.
