Is this the only school there is??? NH is beautiful spring, summer & fall if retired or young, summer & fall if older with injuries.
I worked up there for over a decade. If in Southern NH you can also get a lot of work in the Mass area in crane work, it's close by.
Have you spent any time up there?

I know or use to know some crane operators up there and they stayed busy as all get out, but they learnt from the companies they worked for, not a school.

Good luck though

Thanks Burby
The school is in Brentwood and I have never been there. They have job placement assistance. I have had no luck getting a job with a crane co. or an excavating firm.
Thanks again
