NCCER receives ANSI accreditation

By D.Ann Shiffler03 April 2009

The National Center for Construction Education and Research has received accreditation by the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) for its Crane Operator Certification programme: Industrial/All Purpose, Rough Terrain/All Terrain, and Rubber Tire Truck Mount. The certification programme is a collaboration of NCCER, North American Crane Bureau (NACB), and Prov.

"Having our crane operator programme receive ANSI accreditation is a remarkable achievement for our organization," said Don Whyte, NCCER president. "It further validates that our programme meets the highest professional certification standards for crane operators across the industry."

It includes both written assessments and practical examinations that meet or exceed current ASME B30.5 consensus safety standards, plus 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 countrywide 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.

Also on offer is on-demand testing, structured so a crane operator can take the written assessment and practical examination and receive results back the same day. An operator's certification is good for five years.
