The Crane School Offers Riggers NCCCO Certification
New changes in regulations from OSHA is one of the top reasons The Crane School offers NCCCO Certification for Riggers to corporations of all sizes.  If you need to have two employees or two hundred employees certified The Crane School is your source for accurate, easy to understand training that results in your riggers passing the NCCCO Practical and Operating exams for CCO certification.

According to the NCCCO, certified riggers are often also qualified in a
specific craft or trade and may have another title to describe their skills. Nonetheless, all certified riggers must be trained to handle and move loads, so CCO rigger certification is crucial to ensuring the safety of workers and the construction site when operating cranes.  There are currently two types of certification for Riggers.  "The level of certification depends upon the individual's training, knowledge, skill base and ability to perform functions related to the selection, inspection and proper use of rigging equipment," says the NCCCO on its official website.

During the initial level of certification, a rigger is trained to inspect rigging and recognize safety hazards, use signal operations, identify and connect rigging, as well as use multiple types of equipment for rigging.  The Crane School offers a training course where instructor Bud Wilson teaches candidates safety information required to pass the NCCCO certification exams. This involves a written and practical exam and can be given on-site at the employer's office or at a given classroom or meeting space.

There are two types of training programs available for Riggers. "In addition to knowing and demonstrating Rigger Level I knowledge and skills, a Certified Rigger LEVEL II  can select rigging components and procedures based on rigging capacity," says the NCCCO.

This level of advanced training qualifies a rigger to identify lift points, estimate center of gravity and load weight, select proper rigging for loading, attach rigging considering load angle, rigging capacities and hitch configurations, as well as understand dynamics of the load and proactively identify hazards without supervision. The Crane School offers training for preparation for the NCCCO Certification on two levels, each of which require both a separate written and practical exams. Riggers must pass both written and practical tests before moving to the next level or earning certification.

OSHA requires riggers to be certified by an approved organization (like the NCCCO) or a qualified employer program. Not only does an added certification help professional workers to maintain jobs in an era of increasing regulation and safety precautions, it is also helpful for those looking for a new career or new position, possibly in a new company.  Once earned, however, a certification is good for up to five years and re-certification only requires that riggers comply with the NCCCO's code of ethics and substance abuse policy as well as pass the re-certification written exam in the twelve months before their certification is set to expire.

Riggers seek certification to learn about safety in rigging that can reduce
the risk of crane accidents, prepare themselves for challenges in the field in which quick thinking and safety training can prevent common misjudgments, and to work in accordance with OSHA's regulations for crane operators and riggers. Safety training is something that can save lives in one of the most potentially dangerous workplaces: the construction site. An increase in crane accidents over the past few years, one in which the resulting loss of lives was from the careless acts of a rigger, have resulting in recent regulations requiring certification for operators and riggers.  Jobs that used to approve of CCO certifications for crane operators and riggers, but never require it, are now demanding that their existing workers and new hires have certification.  OSHA's new regulations have made something that once was thought of as extra safety training for corporations to offer to their employees into something that every construction company must have to be operating legally. Because of its experience in the real world as a crane operator and certifying instructor, The Crane School is one of the best places for Rigger NCCCO Certification.  Learn more about Rigger NCCCO certification and training programs here.
