OSHA has adopted regulations that require construction crane operators to become certified by an
accredited crane operator testing organization. This course is designed as a study “crash” course to
assist candidates in preparing to take the written assessments to become a certified mobile crane
There will be four days of study, then students will be given the opportunity to take one or more of the NCCER Crane Operator Certification written assessments on the fifth day of the course. NCCER
certifications are equipment and capacity specific; ANSI approved; and meet or exceed current ASME
B30.5 consensus safety standards and current OSHA 29 CFR part 1926 subpart CC operator
certification requirements. Completing the written assessment is a major step toward completing the
certification process. The study course does not guarantee that any crane operator candidate will pass
the written assessment(s). This course is designed for candidates that already have basic knowledge
and experience with crane operations. Practical examinations, which complete the certification process, will be scheduled and conducted at a later date using cranes supplied by the candidate/employer at the candidate’s location.
