NM updates license application for CCO certified oprators

07 May 2008

The Regulation and Licensing Department for the State of New Mexico recently updated its Hoisting Operator's License Application Form for 2008.

New Mexico recognizes CCO certification as meeting the requirements of the Hoisting Operators Safety Act and Rules Section in lieu of the state's written examination for mobile crane operators.

Crane operators looking to work in New Mexico can apply for a state license using their CCO certification in place of state-approved training and assessment. State law also requires anyone who cannot meet the state's experience requirement to pass a hands-on test, for which New Mexico also utilizes the CCO Practical Exam.

In addition to evidence of certification, candidates must provide documentation of experience, certificate of a physical examination and a drug screening report. Once all these documents are received by the department along with the appropriate fees, the state will issue the operator a New Mexico Hoisting Operator License.

New Mexico is one of 10 states that currently recognize or require the National Commission for the Certification for Crane Operators (NCCCO) program, or its equivalent. Six of these – California, Montana, Nevada, Utah and Washington (in addition to New Mexico) – are western states.

The New Mexico application form can be found at http://nccco.org/licensing/docum ents/NMAppJuly07.pdf
