About Us

Arxcis, Inc., is a national and international crane inspection and operator safety training company. Arxcis, Inc. was established in 1999 after three employees of a small local inspection company purchased the business from the retiring owner. Our office is located in the picturesque unincorporated town of Kingston, Washington, on the banks of Puget Sound. Kingston is a short, thirty minute ferry ride away from the City of Seattle. Our inspectors and trainers very seldom come to the office as they are dispersed from their homes, which have easy access to the greater Seattle area, and to SeaTac airport where they often travel to various job sites.

Training Information

 Live Classes

All of our trainers are certified crane inspectors and are therefore completely familiar with the equipment and all laws and regulations that govern their safe use. We offer training on all equipment that we inspect. These classes can also be customized to meet your particular criteria, budget and time constraints. Many of our customers have us train their employees at the same time we inspect their equipment, thereby saving time and money.

We can train at your facilities and on your equipment, or we offer train-the-trainer classes and materials that enable you to train your own employees.
