Expert Lifting Training in Ghana

We’re pretty proud to announce that our Appointed Person for lifting operations, Andy Packham, has expanded his training expertise internationally. Andy was approached by Paterson Simons & Co (Africa) Ltd, the leading supplier of heavy lifting equipment in West Africa, to deliver a detailed training course in Tema, Ghana.

The course was held at Pasico Ghana, a subsidiary of Paterson Simons, and focused on the Appointed Person (Lifting Operations) certification. Despite the challenging heat and humidity of Ghana, the dedication and eagerness to learn from the participants was impressive. The course covered in-depth aspects of lifting operations, including the selection of appropriate mobile cranes (favouring brands like Manitowoc Grove and Franna), undertaking technical drawings, and calculating lifting accessories. The participants successfully completed their course, which included theoretical exams and practical scenarios requiring technical planning and execution of a lift, showcasing their newfound skills.

All participants met the high standards required and have since received their certification and photo ID cards, marking a significant achievement in their professional development.

Andy’s trip was not just a testament to his expertise but also highlighted the hospitality and professionalism at Pasico Ghana. The team’s helpfulness and politeness made the challenging task much smoother, and for that, a heartfelt thank you is extended to everyone involved.

This successful international venture not only broadens the scope of Sussex Transport’s training capabilities but also strengthens our commitment to advancing the skills of lifting professionals worldwide.  Take a peek at a few snaps below taken by Andy during his trip.

Andy Packham - Training Manager
The journey from a blustery Gatwick to the warmth of Tema was an experience in itself! Adapting to the intense heat and humidity was initially a shock, but the passion and eagerness to learn from everyone at Pasico Ghana truly made it a remarkable experience. Their hospitality made me feel right at home despite the miles, and the successful training outcomes were just the icing on the cake.
