Crane Institute Metric Crane Handbook

Crane Institute of America has released a metric edition of its flagship handbook, “Mobile Cranes.” The book joins “Rigging,” another of the institute’s metric handbook options, and can now be used more efficiently around the world.

Over the past few years, Crane Institute has delivered an increasing number of training classes overseas. It has also seen growth in the number of students from other countries attending classes at the institute’s corporate training facility in central Florida. Many of these students have requested metric editions of CIA’s training materials. The first edition metric “Mobile Cranes” is in parity with the 10th edition of the imperial “Mobile Cranes,” updated with the latest standards and information. Crane Institute of America now has more than half a million books in print and handbooks are available in its online store.
