Concrete Pump Operator


The following information applies specifically to the CCO Concrete Pump Operator certification.

CCO certification is valid for five years. Recertification candidates must complete all recertification requirements during the 12 months prior to their certification’s expiration date. There is no grace period after their certification expires. Candidates whose certification has lapsed must take the same examinations as required for initial certification to be certified again.

Recertification requirements include:

  • Passing the applicable Concrete Pump Operator Written Examination  
  • Compliance with NCCCO’s Substance Abuse Policy
  • Compliance with the Code of Ethics

The written exam required for recertification is identical to the exam required for initial certification.

Recertification candidates may take their written examination up to one year prior to their certification’s date of expiration. Regardless of the date of the written examination within that one-year period, the new five-year certification period begins from the date of expiration of the candidate’s initial certification.
