CCO Certified Rigger Courses at The Crane School...
As un-certified riggers scramble to comply with an OSHA mandate that turns a once-optional certification into a requirement, The Crane School is offering CCO certified rigger courses to help tradesmen in all fields pass the stringent written and practical exams required for the certification.

"We pride ourselves in offering the very best training and service in the industry at affordable prices," officials at The Crane School say. "We offer both open enrollment and on-site courses in all 50 states.  All services are guaranteed."

According to the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators, which is often referred to as the NCCCO, riggers must pass both a written and practical exam in order to obtain a first level certification that satisfies the new requirements set forth by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration.

The NCCCO's Website specifies that applicants who pass one of the exams have up to twelve months to pass the other exam. A riggers NCCCO certification is then valid for up to five years as long as the trades person adheres to the commission's code of ethics as well as the substance abuse policy.

Although the training offered by The Crane School is geared toward assisting professionals who have ongoing or existing experience in the field, it is also open to tradespeople who, in the past, may not have had access to the inner workings of a group of professionals known for exclusivity.

Companies must ensure riggers maintain certification. As a result, riggers who are already certified have a distinct advantage in the job market.

A rigger is defined as a person who possesses advanced knowledge in the science of lifting, moving, and/or placing objects that are very large and/or heavy.

The word "rigger" evolved in a time when heavy equipment, cranes and other industrial tools were not available. Originally, sailors had to rely on teamwork and pure muscle to move over sized loads and operate sailing ships, according to multiple reference sources.

As a result, riggers are often considered specialists in the field and have developed deep-seeded relationships with other riggers, a characteristic evidenced in the cohesion and teamwork between riggers. Inclusion in the ranks of professional riggers can now be realized through training and examination, whereas tradition shows that apprenticeship was once the only point of entry.

Advanced riggers, such as those who pass Level II CCO certified rigger courses, must be able to use equipment made to lift and move loads that way hundreds of thousands to millions of pounds. The job often requires creativity to move objects to places that cannot be reached with other common material handling equipment.

The Crane School embraces the culmination of new and old, of tradition and progress, by recognizing a growing demand in the field and responding in kind to offer CCO certified rigger courses designed specifically to help riggers pass the exams.

The Crane School combines the progressive, forward moving insights of the industrial revolution with the age-old traditions of teamwork and trust to form the pillars of its CCO Certified Rigger Courses.
