CICB’s CCO Preparation Course is specifically designed to prepare candidates who currently work in mobile crane operations for the successful completion of CCO Written and Practical Examinations. We recommend this course for seasoned mobile crane operators. For beginners, we recommend first taking CICB’s Mobile Crane Operator Course, and then taking the CCO Mobile Crane Operator Course.

This program includes CICB’s Study Guide, which is authored and copyrighted by CICB on an annual basis, as well as interactive classroom exercises that emphasize all parts of the CCO Core and Specialty Examinations.

Hands-on practice sessions, if scheduled at the time of applying for the program, are also available for operators to practice in preparation for Practical Examinations.

Practical Exams are available on Lattice Boom Crawler, Telescopic Boom – Swing Cab and Telescopic Boom – Fixed Cab Cranes.
