Training - Entertainment Hoists

Available Courses

We offer 2 types of courses, GIS Industrial Hoist training and LoadGuard Entertainment Hoist training. 

This course is aimed at our Entertainment LoadGuard Motor School.  The course covers the following:

  • General electrical theory
  • Overview of the Hoist
  • How to operate a Hoist correctly
  • Hoist assembly and disassembly
  • Maintenance
  • Troubleshooting and fault finding on faulty hoists
  • Health & Safety
  • Questions & Answers


The course is presented in a hands-on, no-nonsense, practical manner providing a comprehensive overview of the hoist. It will familiarise users and specifies with operational theory, design philosophy, safety aspects, internal workings and trouble-shooting methods of the Hoist.

The course is designed around maintenance rather than operation of hoists. It offers the chance to get dirty and completely strip a hoist down to its component parts and then re-build and operate it, thereby unravelling the mysteries of the machine in the process!

The Training School package includes lunch, light refreshments, 2 days training, instruction materials and Certificate of Attendance on completion of the course. 


The 2 day Training course costs £299

The Training package also includes lunch, light refreshments, course materials and Certificate of Attendance on completion of the course.

Customer Feedback

Hi Dan, 

I made it back in one piece. Nice meeting you and everybody there as indeed, it is difficult to put a face on somebody. The school was very useful, We all improved a lot on the lacks of knowledge we had before and it proved quite educational to rip a hoist completely apart and get it back together, ending up without spare screws or anything AND getting it to actually work... Good servicing a hoist is one thing, selling it another.
Best regards and greetings to the LTM staff.
