The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has accredited three crane operator certification programs offered by the National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER). The programs – industrial/all purpose, rough terrain/all terrain and rubber tire truck mount are a collaboration of NCCER, the North American Crane Bureau and Prov.
The Crane Operator Certification Program identifies individuals with the professional knowledge and skills worthy of being designated as certified crane operators. It includes both written assessments and practical examinations that meet or exceed current ASME B30.5 consensus safety standards, as well as OSHA 1910 standards, for mobile crane operators. Assessments are available in four categories: telescopic boom, lattice boom, boom truck and industrial/all-purpose cranes.
The program features on-demand testing which will allow crane operators to take the written and practical examinations in a timely manner and receive results back the same day. The Crane Operator Certification is good for five years.
