A CLEAR path for NCCCO

15 April 2008

The Council on Licensure, Enforcement and Regulation (CLEAR) has announced that Robert Hornauer, manager of test integrity for the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators' (NCCCO) crane operator certification program, has completed the program requirements of its National Certified Investigator program.

This specialized program, developed and administered by CLEAR, an affiliate of the Council of State Governments, recognizes individuals who have demonstrated excellence in certification program investigation. To qualify, Hornauer had to successfully complete several days of training, as well as pass written examinations in advanced investigative analysis, advanced investigative report development and advanced interviewing.

“This is a significant accomplishment and one of which Bob, and NCCCO, can feel proud,”says NCCCO executive director Graham Brent. “The CCO program strives to maintain the highest standards of exam development and administration, and Bob's achievement will ensure that the quality of CCO certification is maintained for the long term.”

Since joining NCCCO one year ago, Hornauer has conducted numerous audits of test sites and training programs, and investigated cases of misrepresentation of credentials by candidates. “Such policing of the program is essential to ensure the integrity of the CCO program is maintained,”Brent adds. “And employers and candidates alike need to know that, when it issues a certification, NCCCO is making a commitment to support the credential throughout its five-year term.”
