This unit standard does not replace any other unit standard and is not replaced by any other unit standard. 

PURPOSE OF THE UNIT STANDARD 
Demonstrating an integrated practical and theoretical grounding in Crane Operations according to safe handling and maintenance practices in compliance with crane manufacturer's, legislated standards, giving and receiving work instructions; confirming site arrangements; arranging and confirming resources; understanding regulatory permit requirements and arranging and moving mobile crane and equipment to and from site.

The contribution to The National Skills Development Strategy is the key developmental interface between learners and new competencies to be achieved.
Learners who master the applied competence described in this unit standard will contribute to the development of a professional community of Civil Engineering Construction Crane Operators who are able to competently use science and technology when applying operation techniquesThe contribution to socio-economic transformation is that learners will be able to undergo RPL-assessment and thereby receive recognition for previous learning and experience. This in turn will enhance the employability and career prospects of learners employed in this sector.
