Is a crane operator a good career choice?

I am 16 years old and i work for my dad. He does mostly landscaping and hidroseeding. On alot of jobs i run the bobcat and I really like being behind the machine. So i asked my dad about a job working manly in machinery that pays well. And he told me crane operators make good money. But another question i have is, besides a two-three week training crouse what two-four year college degree would i get for operating a crane?

You don't need a degree. You just take the course. But no, it's a horrible career choice. Depending on where you work, you may only get paid about $11 an hour.

try $43.00 per hour as a Union operator in Southern California + xlint benes. 100K plus a year is easy to make. I wouldn't piss on a cranes tires for $11.00 per hour.
