Crane & Rigger

Mobile cranes have become an essential part of most large construction projects. Ensuring the safety of the operator and surrounding personnel, as well as the crane and its surroundings, is a vital part of crane operation.

Because of their enormous versatility and possible configurations, they encounter more variables than any other type of material handling equipment. Successful Crane Operators, Riggers and Signal Persons must have a good understanding of load configurations, environmental conditions, and be able to interpret various charts and graphs when moving loads.

OSHA standards require that operators be certified by a national certifying entity.

ASSESSMENTS

NCCER offers a complete series of entry-level and journeyman level written assessments as part of its National Craft Assessment and Certification Program (NCACP).

These assessments evaluate the knowledge of an individual in a specific craft area and provide a prescription for upgrade training when needed.

All assessments are based upon the NCCER curriculum and have been developed in conjunction with subject matter experts from the industry and Prov™, NCCER’s test development partner.

PERFORMANCE VERIFICATION

NCCER Performance Verifications (PVs) are designed to assess an individual’s skill level on specific tasks. PVs require a participant to demonstrate their skill level in a controlled, observable and measurable manner, and must be administered by a qualified objective performance evaluator.

After successful completion of a written assessment or performance verification, an individual’s qualifications are tracked through NCCER’s Registry.

These industry credentials give employers confidence in the craft professional’s skill, knowledge, and desire for continuous professional development. They also provide the craft professional with industry-recognized credentials to help build upon their career.
