From Our Customers

I am pleased to be able to recommend Crane Inspection & Certification Bureau (CICB) as a very competent source for crane operator training. Our site has been using CICB for a number of years to train and maintain certification for our crane operators. They exhibit an extensive background in the crane industry and their approach to training is very thorough and comprehensive. CICB’s professional instructors are highly dedicated and motivate everyone in the class to strive for excellence. The material is well organized and the training is presented in a clear and concise manner. The classroom instruction and actual hands-on training go beyond our expectations. Our employee’s leave the class with a better understanding of crane operation, their capabilities, and job site safety. It is also a pleasure to work with the office personnel who are very accommodating in meeting our scheduling requirements and are very thorough with the paperwork. I sincerely recommend CICB to others and will not hesitate to use this company for future operator training.
