NCCCO gains certification accreditation

The National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators was awarded accreditation by the American National Standards Institute for two of its newest certification programs.

The CCO Rigger Level I and Signalperson certifications are now accredited by ANSI to the ISO/IEC 17024 International Standard for organizations that certify personnel.

The ANSI’s Professional Certification Accreditation Committee’s decision to expand NCCCO’s accreditation came after rigorous audits of its management systems, psychometric procedures and scrutiny of its test development and administrative processes. 

Riggers and signalpersons holding either of these CCO certifications are qualified under OSHA’s new rules for Cranes and Derricks in Construction, noted NCCCO Executive Director Graham Brent.
