New NCCER tower crane curriculum

By D.Ann Shiffler09 March 2010

NCCER has announced the 2010 release of the Contren Learning Series Tower Crane Operator curriculum. NCCER worked with subject matter experts representing industry from across the country to introduce relevant industry material into the new book, the organization said.

Tower Crane Operator offers technical hints and tips from the crane industry, presenting real-life scenarios similar to ones on a jobsite. The content covers a range of topics, including introduction to the trade, principles of tower cranes, safety, rigging, load charts, and tower crane operations. Additional features include a list of key trade terms, module trade term quizzes, and a color insert.

NCCER develops the Contren Learning Series crane curriculum in partnership with Pearson, a leading textbook publisher. Students successfully completing Tower Crane Operator through an NCCER Accredited Training Sponsor will earn industry-recognized credentials through NCCER's National Registry.

NCCER is a not-for-profit education foundation created by the construction industry to develop standardized curriculum with portable credentials and to help address the skilled construction workforce shortage. For more information visit www.nccer.org
