ISTL is a workforce development service which provides training and competence based qualifications (NVQs) for those working with lifting equipment across various industrial sectors. This includes Appointed Person (lifting operations), Lift Supervisor, Slinger/Signaller and Mobile Crane Operator.

By ensuring that all operatives are properly trained and are able maintain their skills, knowledge and experience over time, the employer can be assured that each operative is competent to perform their duties in a safe and efficient manner.

Competent operators not only work safer and more efficiently, they are more likely to improve customer/client relationships by demonstrating good working practices whilst working on site, especially when operatives are on short term hire to contractors such as crane drivers, slinger/signallers and lift supervisors.

We are specialists in our field and we are accredited by Cskills Awards to deliver NVQs for Appointed Person (lifting operations), Lift Supervisor, Slinger/Signaller and Mobile Crane Operations. These qualifications allow individuals to convert their red CPCS Trained Operator card to a blue Competence Operator card (if applicable).
