Fernandina Beach, Flor. – A1A Software congratulates 20 individuals who achieved Level 3 Certification of the lift planning program in 2019. 3D Lift Plan offers three levels of certification in order to verify a user’s product knowledge and proficiency.

Students must successfully pass a knowledge and practical exam at each level of training in order to be certified. Level 3 represents the ability to complete complex lift planning tasks, such as determining ground bearing pressure and selecting crane mats, planning multi-crane lifts, creating advanced rigging and custom loads, and creating lift plan videos.

“3D Lift Plan offers increasingly more sophisticated integrations and mobile friendly features, making it a valuable project planning tool for people in a variety of roles. Level 3 achievers in 2019 represented crane rental, engineering, general contracting, steel erection, utility and electrical contracting, and industrial and mechanical contracting firms,” said Tawnia Weiss, president of A1A Software.

A1A Software offers six 3D Lift Plan Boot Camps per year, designed to help 3D Lift Plan users get the most benefit of the program. The three-day in person training is limited to 18 individuals. The next Boot Camp takes place Feb. 4-6, 2020 at A1A Software’s headquarters in Fernandina Beach, Flor. Additional Boot Camps are planned for April, June, August, October, and December.
