CICB to Offer NCCCO Crane Operator Prep Training at ConExpo 2014
Amid the dramatic displays of gleaming new cranes dominating the Las Vegas skyline, CICB (a proud sponsor of the NCCCO) will be offering CCO Mobile Crane Operator Prep Training at the ConExpo, on March 3 - 5, 2014, in Las Vegas, NV.
Re-certification candidates will be able to take their exams on March 4th and new and re-certification candidates on March 7th. Practical Exams will be held on March 4 - 7th.
National Certification Requirements for Mobile Crane Operators
All mobile crane operators must be certified by November of 2014 according to the recently enacted OSHA 29CFR 1926 Subpart CC Crane and Derrick standards. About 60,000, or one-quarter to one-third of crane operators in the United States are already NCCCO Certified. Despite the 2014 deadline, crane operators should be pursing their certification now. A crane operator certification by the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operations (NCCCO) is recognized by most employers and contractors as the “gold standard” of crane certification. To ensure that it can provide fair and independent assessments, NCCCO or as it is also known, the CCO, does not provide training or training material. The written exams are administered by an independent third party and the practical exams are administered by NCCCO accredited practical examiners.
CICB has a 17-year history of successfully providing preparatory classes for those seeking their CCO certification. All of CICB’s professionally trained instructors are NCCCO certified operators, riggers and signal persons and are accredited as NCCCO Practical Examiners, who have firsthand knowledge of the written and practical exams. Our modern facilities in both Orlando, FL and Houston, TX, have all types of mobile cranes available for hands-on practice on the NCCCO course before the practical exam. Our Houston, TX location also offers practical exams on Overhead and Articulating Cranes. CICB also has a guarantee of no charge NCCCO preparatory retraining for candidates needing to retake any of the written exams.
