The Crane Operator Certification Program on Industrial/All Purpose, Rough Terrain/All Terrain, and Rubber Tire Truck Mount has earned accreditation by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI). The crane certification program is a collaboration of NCCER, North American Crane Bureau (NACB), and ProV (exam services for occupational assessment).
The program identifies individuals with the professional knowledge and skills required of 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.
Written assessments are administered throughout the country by NCCER Accredited Assessment Centers meeting the crane endorsement requirements, and the practical examinations are given by certified practical examiners. Practical examiner certification workshops are administered by NACB.
A feature of the program is on-demand testing. The program is structured so a crane operator can take the written assessment and practical examination and receive results the same day. An operator’s certification is good for five years.
ANSI, a 501 (c)(3) not-for-profit organization, is the official U.S. representative to the International Organization for Standardization and, via the U.S. National Committee, the International Electrotechnical Commission.
