New mobile crane certification partnership formed
18 April 2008
The National Center for Construction Education and Research (NCCER) and the North American Crane Bureau (NACB) have formed a strategic partnership to develop and deliver certification methods for mobile crane operators.
“The partnership brings together decades of combined expertise in the areas of technical skill training and test development,” said Don Whyte, NCCER president.
The NCCER/NACB mobile crane certification program will consist of four written exams and 13 practical exams. Each written exam focuses on load charts based on the make and model of crane. The practical exams will test hook maneuvering, carrier maneuvering and setting outriggers.
Written exams will be administered by accredited NCCER test sites and the practical exams will be administered by NACB-certified practical examiners. Practical Examiner certification workshops will be offered nationwide.
