By Laura Hatton19 November 2013
Jimmie King, a heavy haul truck driver, rigger and crane operator for Florida, USA-based Bryson Crane Rental Service has received a training and certification scholarship awarded by the Florida Crane Owners Council (FCOC).
The scholarship includes a four day mobile crane operator classroom and hands-on training certification preparation course. The training has been donated by the Crane Institute of America, Sanford, Florida. King also received complimentary mobile crane operator certification exams from the Crane Institute Certification.
Jim Headley, Crane Institute of America director, said, "We selected Jimmie King because he has the talent and drive to become a quality operator and he wanted to come to the Crane Institute of America for training. Safety is a priority for him and Bryson Crane Rental, which has a reputation for sending certified operators out with all its rentals.”
Ray Rutt, Bryson's operations manager, said, "This scholarship will help get King ready for the OSHA requirement to be certified, which is fast approaching. I'm glad there is more than one certification option in the market.”
