Training Centres

Supplying our people with state-of-the-art training since 2007

A significant part of our mission since 2007 has been to supply our people with state-of-the-art training. For that, we operate our own in-house training centres for crane operators to train our employees with the highest standards. At the end of 2022, the Belgian Sarens Training Centre reached a landmark milestone. After achieving our ECOL certificate to give European Crane Operator License trainings to our employees in 2021, we revamped the Centre in 2022, increasing our capacity for both classroom and practical crane training operations.

Next to ECOL training, trainees can take many different courses at our Centre. We aim to provide the perfect balance between theoretical and applied knowledge, including practical experience.

Our overall courses options includes:

  • ECOL - European Crane Operator License
  • Load securing
  • AV006 Working with personal fall protection
  • AV013 Working with a mobile crane
  • IS001 Forklift
  • IS005 Aerial working platform
  • IS006 Rigging and slinging of critical loads
  • IS011 Overhead crane
  • IS031 Rotating telehandler
  • IS032 Rotating telehandler with hoisting function

Apart from Belgium, Sarens also runs other training centres around the world, including Kazakhstan, Poland, and the UK.

In 2004, Sarens replaced the initial by a second training centre "Comokra" in Steenhuffel, Belgium in close cooperation with VZW Montage and VDAB.

The Comokra training centre has several mobile cranes, telehandlers, telescopic work platforms, and other equipment and material available.
