In Ghana APAVE started training courses in January 2010, we found a niche in the market, in that no other 3rd Party Company was providing training services, but this also has its drawbacks.
Due to the differing degrees of education, all courses provided will be “BASIC INTRODUCTORY” courses, as a training body, we have to ensure that all trainee’s have the proper “basic knowledge” both practically and theoretically before continuing with more advanced courses.
All certification provided will be by A4 sized laminated certificates, headed Safety Training Certificate this will qualify the trainees in the “BASIC OPERATION OF” (whatever course they are attending).
All training involves a practical and theoretical side, and in some instances a certificate could be supplied with a written notice stating “under supervision only” this will allow the trainee to use the equipment that he / she has completed the course with, BUT, under a supervisory capacity only, until deemed competent enough to operate said equipment safely on their own. Their competency would be tested (between a one month and six months period after the initial course) in a separate, one day evaluation test comprising of theoretical and practical examination (proving that continual in-house learning / training is being completed).
All companies that request courses are reminded that APAVE can only instil a “BASIC INTRODUCTION TO” course, and it is up to each and every individual company to continue the trainees learning, with ongoing in-house training, APAVE can also supply this training if a client has no time or structure to do this.
All trainers within APAVE are professionally trained, and undergo constant evaluation by APAVE; they are LEEA Qualified (Lifting Equipment & Engineering Association) and C.I.A. Approved Trainers (Crane Institute of America Inc).
All training videos are professionally approved training videos, supplied by accredited training companies.
Certification for all trainers, are readily available for perusal by clients (just contact the APAVE Base Manager, Ghana):
