Sims assigned me my own crane and ordered my rigging,
         which is a great feeling. I can’t believe there isn’t a line of
         young people waiting to complete this program.”
           After apprentices graduate, Sims emphasizes continued
         employee training on new equipment and knowledge of the
         ongoing changes to rules and regulations. Berry regularly
         goes into the field to evaluate the program, conduct safety
         audits and test operators on the spot.
           “This is not a fast-track program,” said Berry. “Sims offers
         turnkey, comprehensive training with long-term growth and
         continuing  education. We are focused on creating highly-
         qualified crane operators who are an asset to the industry.”
