After a thorough onsite audit of its certification procedures and psychometric protocols, the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has granted NCCCO continued accreditation for its more than 20 crane and crane-related personnel certifications.

ANSI’s audit of NCCCO occurs annually as a requirement of its accreditation to the ISO/IEC 17024 international standard for organizations that certify personnel, with an on-site inspection by ANSI auditors every other year. Although NCCCO’s current accreditation runs through 2022, ANSI requires a comprehensive report documenting program performance and internal procedures on an annual basis, and grants continued accreditation only if all requirements are met.

ANSI requirements are rigorous and designed to give assurance to those who depend on certification programs that the tests are fair, sound and valid assessments of the knowledge and skills they are intended to measure. As a result, ANSI accreditation demonstrates that NCCCO’s nationally recognized and administered programs have been developed – and are maintained – to the highest standards of test integrity.

“Candidates and employers alike can continue to be assured that, with ANSI’s independent verification of NCCCO’s policies and procedures, CCO certification meets the highest professional standards of examination development and administration,” said NCCCO President Kerry Hulse. “Each NCCCO certification card is backed by the ANSI guarantee of program excellence unequaled in this industry.”
