CCO certification recognized by CSP

15 April 2008

The Board of Certified Safety Professionals (BCSP) has recognized the CCO crane operator certification program as meeting its requirements for Continuance of Certification (COC).

BCSP, which operates the Certified Safety Professional (CSP) certification program, has authorized credit of five COC points for any individual certified by CCO as a crane operator in any of its three programs (mobile, tower and overhead crane). CSP-certified individuals need to accumulate 25 points during their five-year certification to achieve recertification.

The decision by BCSP came after the Savoy, IL-headquartered certification organization evaluated CCO certification on the basis of both the relevancy of the examination content and the quality of the program. Like the CSP program, CCO is accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies (NCCA) and formally recognized by federal OSHA.
