About the course  

We would like to invite you to take part in a course for the maintenance of warehouse stacker cranes. Our qualified staff will do their best to ensure that the knowledge you acquire during the course is sufficient for you to pass the final examination. 

Scope of training

The course is divided into two parts:

  • theoretical - in the form of lectures at our premises or in an online version on a training platform,
  • practical - involves learning about the machine and its proper maintenance under the guidance of our instructors.

Both parts prepare the trainee for the examination to be taken before a board appointed by the Office of Technical Inspection. 


Once the course has been completed, we will apply on your behalf to the Office of Technical Inspection for an examination date. If you pass the exam, a qualification certificate will be issued, entitling you to maintain the equipment (UDT certificate).

Specific features of the stacker cranes

Warehouse stacker cranes are devices that automatically retrieve and transport loads. They place goods on so-called installation racks. These stacker cranes can operate in 3 modes:  

  • manual mode - used during maintenance and repair work; the operator controls the stacker crane from the cabin, using manual mechanisms,   
  • semi-automatic mode - the operator controls via a computer in the corridor, 
  • automatic mode - the most frequently chosen mode. The operator directs the machine with the help of the management system and the stacker crane receives the commands, as it is equipped with a microprocessor.
