Lift & Move USA launches website with educational resources
The crane, rigging, and specialised transportation industry relies on people with technical skills, but faces a shortage of qualified workers. In order to promote the career opportunities in this fast-paced, high-tech sector, Lift & Move USA connects students and educators with the people, equipment, and companies that work in crane, rigging, and specialised transportation operations.
A new website, launched in May 2020, now showcases the careers, industries, and types of work related to this specialty field. Additional resources available on the site include information on where to get training, certifications that are needed, and scholarships.
Industry professionals can also find ideas for engaging with students, parents, and educators in your local area, best practices for planning in-person events, and an archive of relevant research and toolkits related to workforce development.
“Lift & Move USA supports workforce development efforts that are aligned with construction, equipment, manufacturing, and related fields,” said Tracy Bennett, director. “We seek to join forces with other like-minded organisations in promoting the skilled trades and careers that serve crane, rigging, and specialised transportation operations,” she said.
