NCCCO Training Policy

The National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) does not offer training.

Nevertheless, NCCCO considers training to be vital to the certification process. Indeed, one of its principal aims has been to stimulate the recognition for the need for professional instruction in the knowledge and skills that define crane operator competency.

NCCCO recommends that any candidate or instructor desiring to prepare for CCO certification exams utilize the study materials listed in the appropriate Candidate Handbook and carefully review the Knowledge Areas listed there.

NCCCO strongly urges employers or candidates seeking training to submit the NCCCO Knowledge Areas to any training firm they may consider utilizing to ensure that their curriculum matches the knowledge tested on the CCO exams.

Training Companies

While NCCCO is unable to recommend or endorse any particular training company, a listing of training companies that have indicated they offer preparatory training for the CCO certification exams is maintained on the NCCCO website. Such companies are permitted to use the CCO logo and/or acronym with permission in accordance with CCO’s stated policy (see Use of CCO Logo). As more fully explained on the Training Providers page, no endorsement of the programs offered is implied. Furthermore, this list does not necessarily include all training companies offering preparatory training.
