CCO is a nationally recognized nonprofit corporation that was founded in 1995
to establish independent and equal testing for both the written and skill demonstration
of crane operators. The exams are administered by a qualified testing center.
To be able to take the exam you must have at least 1000 hours of crane related
experience in the last 5 years, meet medical requirements, and pass a written
exam (core and at least one specialty) and a practical exam. For more information,
you may get in touch with Tammy Brownlee at NCS or if you prefer to contact the CCO
organization directly their number is 703-560-2391 or www.nccco.org.
NCS can help prepare your students to pass the CCO exam.Our training classes
are either in Orlando, FL or at your location and vary on the number of days depending
on the skill level of your students. If the parameters are right, we can even
set up your location to be a certified test site so that your operators can take
the skills test on your crane.
National Crane Services fully endorses the national certification
program offered by the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators
(CCO), and will prepare candidates for the CCO tests.
