Do you need any qualifications to legally operate a crane in a construction site?

When you’re training to work in construction, do you need to do a seperate course or qualification in order to be able to operate a crane? Or are all construction workers taught it in training?

    Of course you need specialised training! Crane operators have to sit several courses in safe crane operations. Crane operators tend to just work cranes and not help with general building work as they earn more money and it is only cost effective to have them on site when they are actually needing to use the crane.
