A certified crane operator is not necessarily CCO-certified. Only NCCCO can provide the widely adopted and recognized CCO certification. While there are other companies that seek to certify crane operators, only one organization—the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO)—provides CCO certification. For nearly twenty years, successful completion of the CCO certification requirements has informed the world that a crane operator is certified to NCCCO's high standards. Both "NCCCO" and "CCO" are federally registered trademarks owned by NCCCO and used in connection with education testing and certification. br>
