Practical Assessment – Overview

The practical assessments for Alberta's Apprenticeship program for Wellhead Boom Truck, Boom Truck, Mobile (Conventional and Mobile Hydraulic) and Tower Crane Operator trade qualifications are being delivered by Fulford Certification. The program is designed to make the process easier for applicants by conducting the assessment at your worksite and completing the process in a faster time frame.

Once you have successfully completed your theory test and have paid the required Practical Assessment fees to Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training, you will need to complete a Practical Assessment through Fulford. To be scheduled for a practical assessment, please complete and submit the application form. Practical assessments include a pre-operational inspection and target course with and without a load. Upon receiving your application we will contact you to schedule your assessment.

Information on how to prepare for the practical assessment, crane and site requirements, training videos and more are available on this website.

Fulford Certification has extensive experience in assessing the skills of crane operators and has completed more than 10,000 practical assessments of crane operators working in Western Canada since 2008.
