Global competence centres for mobile and crawler cranes

Liebherr provides training courses for mobile and crawler cranes at three sites:

We organise a wide range of courses and advanced training on a large number of topics at our training centres. These courses are attended by Liebherr personnel and customers.

Training courses for mobile and crawler cranes

Service quality based on advanced training

Regular training in our own training centres enables us to guarantee the high quality of Liebherr's service offering.

New technical discoveries make it essential to follow the latest developments in the mobile and crawler crane market. The aim of the training team is therefore to continue to develop and pass on new skills and the latest expertise to Liebherr personnel.

The range extends from product and technology seminars and workshops for information technology and data processing to courses for personnel development and management.

Local training

In addition to training at the Liebherr training centre, we also use specially trained multiplicators. This enables us to cover the training needs of our personnel at our global service locations. The multiplicators pass on their expertise on technical topics locally to our trained personnel. This enables us to keep our service team right up to date.

Practical training courses for specific target groups

Well trained specialists are the key to the success for every company. Our professional range of training courses enables us to help your personnel to extend their expertise and establish practical experience. To improve the knowledge transfer we structure our courses by professional groups and previous experience. Experienced Liebherr trainers ensure that specific problems and questions from everyday work can also be tackled.

On request we will also create basic and advanced training courses specifically tailored to your needs. If you are interested, please talk to your local sales partner.

Including crane driving licence

Of course, you can also take your crane driving test with us. The requirement is at least six months of experience with driving mobile cranes.

Range of online courses

We also provide Liebherr personnel with online courses to further extend our range of training courses. These are designed to supplement local seminars held in the training centres.

LWE.NET training relates to current topics which should be passed on to all our service personnel as quickly as possible. NET training can be used all over the world.

Welding engineering focussing on mobile cranes

Welding engineering: Competence centre for Liebherr personnel

Welding engineering: Competence centre for Liebherr personnel

Liebherr has been running its own welding competence centre since 2012 on the basis that the best quality steel is no use unless we can join it. Up to 300 people receive training there every year.

Liebherr delivers basic and advanced training to up to 300 people from our mobile cranes division every year in our own welding competence centre. This enables the company to ensure that it has plenty of well trained young talent. At the same time the welding competence centre in Ehingen/Donau provides experienced skilled personnel with an opportunity to keep their expertise and skills up to date.

The managers at the training centre work closely with welding specialists from design, development and production to tailor the course contents to the specific requirements of cranes.

Measures to extend the service life for hoist ropes

To ensure a long service life for hoist ropes, it is very important that they are wound onto the winch drums with sufficient tension. The procedure for extending the service life of hoisting ropes, we want to show you with the help of this training film.

Increase rope´s service life by hoist rope cut-off

Using multilayer spooling of the hoist rope, as is normal on mobile and crawler cranes, the greatest stress for the rope occurs at the crossing areas on the winch. The damage which occurs here generally plays a major part in the rope reaching its "replacement state". With this movie we want to show how you can increase rope’s service life by hoist rope cut-off.

A crane driver needs three things

A Must for all crane operators: Strong wind and especially gusts can be really dangerous during a crane job. We want to raise awareness about this topic to secure working with mobile and crawler cranes. Take a moment and have look at this movie!
