The Crane Inspection & Certification Bureau (CICB) has moved into a new location inside the Holt Crane & Equipment Link-Belt Complex at Loop 610 East and Homestead Road in Houston. The facility includes two modern classrooms that seat up to 40 participants. Cranes and rigging gear are also available for hands-on training, practice sessions and written and practical examinations including small hydraulic fixed cab, large hydraulic swing cab, lattice boom and overhead cranes, as well as a variety of rigging gear and loads to increase the learning experience.

CICB's Safety Training Programs, available at its Houston facilities include operator training on all types of lifting equipment, crane and rigging inspector training for all types of cranes and rigging, rigger and signalperson training, manager and supervisor training for lifting operations safety, and train-the-trainer training for operators, riggers, signalpersons and inspectors. CICB also schedules monthly classes for NCCCO preparatory training, written and practical exams for Mobile Crane Operators, Rigger Level I and II, and Signalperson.

"We are confident that these new teaching facilities at Holt's Link-Belt distributorship are among the best in the industry," said Craig Epperson, president and chief executive officer of CICB, said. "The availability of various types of cranes and lifting gear for supervisor, operator, rigger, signalperson and inspector training along with access to Bishop Lifting Product's rigging and fabrication facility a short distance away will give students a learning experience that is second-to-none."
