NCCCO Restructure Policy

The National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) is announcing the following:

1-Written Exam Retake Policy. NCCCO will be implementing an Exam Retake Policy effective October 1, 2019. This policy will require any candidate failing an NCCCO written exam to wait a minimum of four weeks before being eligible to retake the same exam again. This policy will ensure greater fairness in testing amongst all NCCCO candidates as it prevents candidates who are retesting from having an unfair advantage on a written exam due to content familiarity. NCCCO is actively developing alternate forms of all written exams to allow individuals to retest more quickly in the future. This policy change only affects those individuals who have failed a written exam and are looking to retake the exam within a four-week period. Note: There is no impact on practical testing whatsoever. Please see the Retake Policy FAQs for additional information.

2-Candidate Exam Fee Restructure. Over the years, NCCCO’s candidate exam fee schedule has become extremely complex and contains numerous inconsistencies. This has resulted in a large number of applications not being completed correctly which has created unanticipated fees and charges to candidates. The fee structure has led to confusion and frustration for candidates, employers, training companies and NCCCO. The NCCCO Board of Directors mandated that the fee structure be simplified. NCCCO created a revised candidate fee structure and presented it to the various committees and governance levels within NCCCO. This revised candidate fee structure will go into effect on January 1, 2020. We wanted to assure that you were made aware of these changes in a timely manner. Please see Candidate Fee Restructure FAQs and 2020 Candidate Fees Table for additional information.  

If you have questions, concerns and need the training to get you ready for the NCCCO Certification examinations, contact us at:

Tower Cranes in the Morning

When you ride by the construction site, do you ever think about the Crane Operator in the seat up there and what their life is like that early in the morning?

Well, if you ever get the chance to talk to the men and women who sit up so high; overcome the fear of heights and depth perception, they will tell you there is no place they’d rather be!

The training that they receive, the tests they have to take, the nerves they have to overcome when lifting these loads over people’s heads off of the ground and off these large tractor trailers is an ongoing day in the life of a TOWER CRANE OPERATOR

Thanks to all who have taken our training and passed the examinations to call their- selves Tower Crane Operators through the NCCCO certifications. We at CCTI look forward to the next time we meet and get to share the feeling of sitting in the seat of the Tower Crane.

Remember to “Look up and Live”

Fixed Cab Boom Truck Training

When you call on a company to help you with your roof, do you know if they are qualified or certified to operate that Boom Truck Fixed Cab?

If that is part of your criteria for hiring the right Roofing company, then these guys are the ones to hire!!! They demonstrated the ability to operate the crane, setup the crane, inspect the crane and most of all move the crane around the course designed to show the skills of each operator.

Great job by the Roofing Company listed as Bull Dog Group and its partners of Allied Roofing and Triangle Roofing.

Rough Terrain Mobile Crane Training in Savannah, GA

What could be better than spending some time in Savannah, GA?

Answer: Spending time with some really sharp guys in the Paper Mill of Savannah, GA!!!

We had a blast learning about Mobile Cranes through 3 days of training. Each student took the 3 days to learn about Crane setup, inspections, working around power lines, rigging, signaler, OSHA & ASME standards, lifting personnel, and most of all LOAD CHARTS.

Then we spent time out on the crane learning how to set up the crane and operate the crane through an obstacle course.

Great job to all and look forward to the next time we can get together. These are your newest members to the Swing Cab Crane Operator crew at International Paper of Savannah, GA.

Rigging in the Dirt and Rocks

RIGGING LEVEL 1

Had the opportunity to work with an unique group of individuals that provide us with Aggregate and Agricultural Products. They are Wakestone and the location in Knightdale, North Carolina showed their rigging, sling inspection and hardware use during our Rigging Level 1 Class. It was an honor to work with these fine men demonstrating the many levels of knowledge in the material handling industry and you can see they take pride in their company. Congratulations to all the attendees on completing Level 1 Rigging. I look forward to seeing you soon for Level 2 Rigging.

Below are some pictures of the guys at work in the classroom.2019-07-22 10.36.082019-07-22 10.36.142019-07-22 10.38.102019-07-22 10.38.262019-07-22 10.38.342019-07-22 10.38.39-12019-07-22 10.38.442019-07-22 10.40.022019-07-22 10.40.07-12019-07-22 10.40.162019-07-22 10.40.21-12019-07-22 10.40.242019-07-22 10.40.342019-07-22 10.40.41-12019-07-22 10.40.46-12019-07-22 10.42.25-1
