Liebherr is rebranding its CPCS training school at its UK headquarters as Liebherr Training Services.According to the company, the new name better reflects the broader range of personal development, theoretical and practical courses, qualifications and certifications now available.
Originally designed to provide certified compliance for lifting operations and equipment requirements in accordance with UK regulations and standards for the safe use of mobile cranes, Liebherr Training Services said it has expanded its curriculum considerably since inception.

The training provider now offers qualifications, assessments and training in appointed person, crane supervisor, slinger and signaller, mobile and crawler crane operator, pedestrian operated tower cranes, mobile elevated work platforms, LICCON planner, and the influence of wind on lifting operations, as well as offering NVQs in relevant disciplines.
Courses can either be held at Liebherr’s training centre at its Biggleswade headquarters in Bedfordshire, or at the customer’s own premises.
