Anyone who operates, or intends to be operating a lorry mounted crane, sometime referred to as HIAB Training. The courses are made to suit novice operators, experienced operators, those refreshing their training, or for attachment conversions. The courses are designed to ensure the efficient and safe operation of equipment.

HIAB is really a brand name and the correct term for the equipment is ‘lorry crane’ or ‘lorry loader’ (when mounted to a commercial vehicle). Other manufacturers of these types of cranes include Atlas, Cormach, Fassi, HMF, Hyva, Palfinger, Penny Hydraulics and PM.

As transport industry experts, Total Compliance has been delivering ALLMI training to hauliers, logistics companies and construction businesses in Manchester for years.

Our lead ALLMI trainer Jonathan, regularly travels up and down the A6 and M60, visiting customers in Manchester, Stockport, Oldham and Bolton, to deliver ALLMI training on their premises.
