I have emailed the albertans to see how recognised my quals are so hopefully I'll get a positive response.
There's hardly many tower cranes on the sands,all crawlers and mobiles yeah?

I'm not sure which types of cranes are out here as I'm not too familiar with the trade, all I know if that there's lots of cranes out here, big ones and small ones. These are the three biggest crane companies that I see out out here:
-http://www.mammoet.com
-http://www.myshaksales.com/
-http://www.sterlingcrane.ca/

Also, most of the crane operators work under the International Union of Operating Engineers, local 955, check them out too: http://www.iuoe955.com/

I remember last year I was on this job and a big Mammoet crane broke and they had fly in a guy to fix it all the way from Holland, I imagine he made a few bucks to do so, so if anyone is interested, crane mechanic is probably a pretty good trade too!

Don’t sweat the petty things, pet the sweaty things.
