What does hosting a Workshop
CCO Practical Examiner Accreditation Workshops
are hosted by companies and organizations around
the country. In order to host a Workshop, you
will need to be able to provide a firm, level
area, free of ground and overhead obstructions,
and large enough to accommodate one crane for
each of the three Mobile Crane categories or a Tower Crane. Lattice boom cranes generally require an
area up to 100ft. x 150ft.; smaller telescopic
cranes may need an area only 60ft. x 60ft. For
the classroom activities, we will need a room
large enough to comfortably accommodate around
20 participants, close by the outside area containing the crane(s), complete with TV andr DVD, white board or flip chart.
Do I need to supply the cranes?
Yes, the host site is responsible for providing
a crane in each of the three exam categories:
a lattice boom crane; a swing cab telescopic
boom crane; and a
fixed cab telescopic boom crane; or a hammerhead or self erecting tower crane. You must ensure they comply
with all appropriate regulations and standards,
including the inspection requirements of ASME/ANSI
B30. You'll also need to have a crane
operator on hand on the first day to demonstrate
the practical test.
Who lays out the test site?
While the host site is responsible for laying
out the site, CCO will provide you with detailed
data and step-by-step instructions, including
a CAD site plan. CCO personnel will guide you
through the process of placement of the cranes
and test materials.
Do my employees have to pay a Workshop registration
In recognition of the time, labor and materials
the host site contributes to the event, registration
for up to two (2) of your employees is complimentary (depending on the type of workshop being hosted). Significant discounts apply if you can guarantee a minimum number of registrants. Please contact us for details.
Are there any other benefits?
CCO will be happy to provide press coverage of
the event through our own newsletter and media
contacts, and develop a press release for your
own use. You will also receive an official
CCO Plaque of Appreciation, recognizing your
participation in the program. Moreover, as
a result of preparing for the Workshop, you’ll
be all set up as an official CCO Practical
Exam Test Site and be ready to begin testing
