From Our Customers

 “Being new to the industry, I trained at CICB as a mobile crane operator and took my NCCCO examinations. I was very impressed with quality of training, the knowledge of the instructors, and the use of ‘live’ cranes vs. simulators.   I now have a very rewarding career in the industry, all thanks to CICB.”
C.S., Bourne, MA, 03/22/2012
"Crane Inspection & Certification Bureau fully endorses the national certification program offered by the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO), and will prepare candidates for the CCO certification examinations."

CICB Employee Receives Top Trainer Award

Angelo Alverio, a very successful bi-lingual trainer and inspector employed by Crane Inspection & Certification Bureau (CICB), has recently received the Professional Top Trainer 2013 Award sponsored by the Association of Crane & Rigging Professional (ACRP) and the Crane and Rigging Hotline. Nominees are judged by use of innovative or hands-on instruction, encouraging peer or corporate accountability, evidence that the training was successful, and the overall impact on the students, environment or industry. CICB instructors have also received Top Trainer Awards in 2009, 2011 and 2012.

"Organizations are linking learning to performance and the bottom line, understanding that a highly skilled, knowledgeable workforce is critical to achieving growth and success” said Jerry Longtin, a 2009 Top Trainer and General Manager of CICB. All of our professionally trained instructors and subject matter experts are not only NCCCO Certified as Mobile, Overhead & Articulating Crane Operators, but are also CCO Certified Riggers, Signalpersons, and Crane Inspectors. We understand and follow the Learning Pyramid, where 75 to 90% of students learn more by participating in hands-on training.
