What does HIAB stand for?

HIAB is Hydrauliska Industri AB and is a Swedish manufacturer of lorry mounted cranes

What is ALLMI?

ALLMI is the accrediting body for HIAB training. ALLMI stands for the Association of Lorry Loader Manufacturers and Importers.

What happens after I have completed my HIAB training?

Upon completion, you’ll be issued an ALLMI license valid for 5 years. To maintain your license, simply complete Refresher training. However, if you fail to do so before your ALLMI license expires, you’ll be required to undertake Experienced training.

I work in a yard loading & unloading trucks using a HIAB. Do I need and ALLMI license?

No. When operating a HIAB within your employer’s yard, ‘In-house’ training suffices. However, if you change employers or use a HIAB off-site, while not legally required, it’s advisable to obtain an ALLMI license. This demonstrates that you’ve undergone recognized training and can boost your credentials.

I don't have an ALLMI license but have operated a HIAB for an ex employer. Do I need to complete Novice training to get an ALLMI license?

Not at all. If you can provide evidence of prior HIAB operation experience, you’ll only be required to complete Experienced training.

Are there different attachments on a HIAB?

Yes there is. There are 4 main attachments on a HIAB and they are Remote, Hook, Brick Grab and Clamshell.
