Every week I am on a worksite more often than not I will be asked "how do you become a tower crane operator" enquiring on how to enter our closed secret society. At great risk I am going to reveal this secret and I hope my brother tower crane operators will not be to upset. Well... basically you have to be born into it with your father being a crane operator and his father before him, either that or have three tower crane operators vouch for you before entering you districts tower crane lodge, then you go to a meeting arguing your case why you should be a tower crane operator.
