Dozens of youngsters from South Yorkshire signed up for the course, trying their hand at everything from vehicle recovery to an obstacle course. They were put through their paces by 102 Battalion Royal Electrical and Mechanical Engineers, an Army Reserve unit. The 17 to 25-year-olds hope to put the skills they have learnt on the Armed Forces Employability Pathways into practice either in the military or on Civvy Street. The group of 43, who volunteered through their colleges or employment schemes, travelled to windswept Warcop Training Area in Cumbria. Many of them were from the military skills course with the Learning Curve Group in Sheffield and the Diploma for Entry to the Uniformed Services at Rotherham Colleges Dinnington campus. They completed a 1000m obstacle course, where they were taught to never leave a man behind. Instructors also showed them the basics of camouflage and concealment as well as testing their wits on a series of command tasks. They then had a go at the one and half mile run which potential recruits have to do as part of their fitness assessment. Troops from 1 CS REME helped them to build beach buggies, lay bridges and recover vehicles trapped in the mud using a Tirfor winch.

The Crane Institute of America is one of the largest crane training facilities in the United States. They provide hands-on training on mobile cranes, overhead cranes, tower cranes, and rigging, and they hold classes at more than 80 locations in the country. Headley also serves as the CEO of Crane Institute of America Certification (CIC), an organization recognized by OSHA that provides accredited certifications for crane operators, riggers, signalpersons, and inspectors. Headley is also the author of Rigging , a widely-respected field handbook that includes practical instruction on how to use rigging and slings, as well as lifting capacity charts for a wide range of hardware. Mr. Headleys extensive crane experience helped us ensure that we were choosing the most useful information for our introductory-level course. His review of the finished visual aspects of our training was also very valuable to ensure that we were showing realistic setups for the crane and rigging components. Convergence is very proud to release this highly-visual and easy-to-understand course. We feel it will be a valuable part of introductory or refresher safety and OSHA compliancy training for industrial facilities that use overhead cranes.
