Hand signals

Load chart

Setup truck

Moving boom and ball smoothly to the different targets with and with out load for test


I would like to see 2-4 guys in the course  ,2 working on and around the truck (operating /signal person )

2 working on load charts/ hand signals and rotate the people to different positions  all day long,all working together. It is hard to say how long it’s going to take, but roughly to train anyone , I am thinking about 10-16 hours per person operating the truck should give us a good idea if they will be ready for the A test. some will be less ,some more.
