NCCER partnered with the North American Crane Bureau (NACB) and Prov to develop the Crane Operator Certification Program. The program consists of 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. The Industrial/All-Purpose, Rough Terrain/All Terrain and Rubber Tire Truck Mount programs are accredited by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) and is recognized by OSHA.
The purposes of the program are:
- To enhance the practice and profession of crane operation through the establishment of validated and reliable certification instruments that accurately assess the competency of a wide range of crane operators, thereby directly promoting competency of operation and a safer work environment
- To organize and implement a comprehensive program for the qualification of crane operators
- To promote the development of knowledge and skills of those interested in the crane operating and hoisting profession
- To provide technical assistance to agencies having hoisting and crane operator regulatory authority, applicable to testing and certification
On April 21st, 2015, the Training Center purchased a Crane Simulator. We would like to give special thanks to Rodney Rhodes and his team at Cardinal Training Group for the numerous hours they spent developing and loading various obstacle course simulations onto the unit; the donation of their time and expertise is very much appreciated! The Simulator is stationary, and will be available at ABC, free of charge, for exclusive use of our members and students, during both our office and after-work school hours. Reservations are on a first-come/first-serve basis, and your employees will need to be accompanied by a Supervisor or Crane Operator.
