Crane Operators Certification
The Crane School provides on-site and classroom training to pass the NCCCO written and practical exams for crane operators certification. The Crane School also provides safety training for signalpersons and riggers.
Recent changes to the regulations for crane operators now state that they must be certified by an accredited crane operator testing organization like the NCCCO, or qualified by an audited employer program. These new rules dictate how crane operators are certified under OSHA. Signalperson's must also be qualified by qualified evaluator.
The reason for these new rules are to protect the safety of the workers by preventing accidents that are associated with the use of cranes. There have been a significant number of fatalities from the use of cranes, which are caused by electrocution, boom collapse and overturning. This new rule will affect 4.8 million workers and 267,000 construction companies. The rule also addresses new provisions for crane operators certification, crane inspections, set-up and the disassembly. The goal is that proper compliance with these new provisions will prevent crane operator or other worker deaths and protect the property owners and the general public.
The Crane School fully endorses the NCCCO and will prepare students to pass the written and practical operating exams for NCCCO certification. Learn more about our training programs and services for crane operators certification by contacting the Crane School at 386-668-8887.
