January 18, 2023—CCO is pleased to announce the following Practical Exam Proctor Workshops (formerly Practical Examiner Accreditation Workshops), to be held in Las Vegas, NV, in connection with the CONEXPO-CON/AGG show:

In addition, CCO will be offering practical and written examinations before and during the CONEPO-CON/AGG show, as follows:

  • Telehandler—Rotating practical exams to be conducted March 11–13 for Telehandler workshop attendees only
  • All practical and written exams to be conducted March 15–17 available to everyone

*The audit event for the Mobile Crane will only include the TLL and TSS crane types. Those interested in completing the Lattice Boom (LAT) Practical Exam Proctor credential will need to either (a) register for a different Mobile Crane PEPP workshop (please visit the Upcoming PEPP Workshops page on our website), or (b) schedule a Lattice Boom demonstration practical exam at their location at a later date and will be responsible for reasonable costs associated with sending an auditor to administer that exam.

**CCO policy states that for programs that have not been deemed to be “mature” for purposes of Practical Exam Proctor credentials, such as the Telehandler Program, certification prior to attending the workshop is not required. However, certification is required in order to become a Practical Proctor. Therefore, certification exams for the Telehandler program (practical and written) will be administered for certification purposes during CONEXPO. Candidates will need to apply and pay for certification exams separately. Please contact for more information.

***In order to allow the Telehandler—Rotating workshop to be completed in two days, part of the workshop (the “core content”) is being delivered virtually prior to the CONEXPO event. Those registering for one of these Telehandler PEPP workshops must also register and attend one of the two pre-workshop online events being held virtually on February 27 and March 3.

Who Should Attend:

CCO reviews all potential participants’ applications before admission to the workshop is granted. Certification in the applicable program(s) is required when applying to attend the workshop. Spots cannot be reserved pending certification results. Each workshop is strictly limited to a maximum number of participants, depending on the program, and is filled on a first-come, first-served basis.

Deadline to Register:

The deadline to register for this workshop is two weeks prior to each workshop. Please fill out the corresponding workshop application and return it to CCO’s Utah Office via email to in PDF format.

Prior to submitting your workshop application, please review CCO’s updated workshop cancellation policy included on the second page of the application.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact the Test Personnel Credentials Team.
