CCO Rigger Level I and II Certification

Riggers play an essential role in lifting operations. They use the proper slings, shackles, and additional rigging hardware to attach loads to a crane's hook safely. You can find riggers anywhere lifting takes place, from recovering a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket to suspending an Air Force jet engine for maintenance.

Companies that value well-trained rigging professionals on their teams have relied on CICB's industry-leading training for over half a century.

CCO Rigger I and II

This CCO preparatory training program prepares new and experienced riggers to pass the CCO Rigger I and II Written and Practical Exams. The benefit of attaining both is that riggers can work on various rigging tasks without supervision. 

To get your team to certification efficiently, we offer individual and combination courses, depending on existing experience and certification. Students benefit from taking CICB's practice tests during the training. These practice tests help our instructors see which study topics need extra attention. These tests then serve as the ultimate guides to ace the exam.

Here is some of the information your riggers will need to know to pass their exams:

  • Rigger Level I: To earn Level I certification, riggers must understand how to inspect rigging before use, recognize associated hazards, and have basic knowledge of hitch configurations, capacities, and basic knots. 
  • Rigger Level II: Along with knowing everything a Level I Rigger must know, Level II Riggers must be able to estimate the weight and the center of gravity, determine and select appropriate rigging for a load, understand load dynamics, and identify lift points.
