Holding a CCO certification shows employers, colleagues, and the general public that the individual with said certification possesses both the knowledge and practical skills required to safely operate mobile cranes.
What does it take to get your CCO certification?
To be crane operator certified, students must pass both a written and practical exam. North American Crane Certification provides training that will prepare students for both. You can choose between on-site private classes or open-enrollment certification training at a location near you. The crane operator practical exam consists of various tasks that the candidate must pass in order to obtain CCO certification.
The exams will be valid for a time period of one year. Furthermore, the written exam must be completed within one year of the practical exam and vice-versa for the exams to remain valid. After both exams have been completed, the candidate will receive a complete CCO certification.
Can a candidate test without attending a prep class?
Any candidate can opt to take the written exams without attending the crane operator preparation class. However, it is recommended that candidates attend the prep class to ensure that they pass. If a candidate opts not to attend the prep class and fails the exams, then the candidate will be required to pay sitting fees for the next exam. Our prep class prepares the student completely to pass the exam!
