October 2019—As a leading advocate of jobsite safety and source of information for the industry, the National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO) was again highly visible at this year’s International Construction and Utility Equipment Exposition (ICUEE). The biennial ICUEE, also known as “The Demo Expo,” is the leading event for utility professionals and construction contractors seeking comprehensive insights into the latest industry technologies, innovations, and trends.
ICUEE 2019 was held in Louisville, KY, October 1–3, and was the largest in the show’s history with a record 1.34 million square feet of exhibits showcasing the latest products and solutions for the utility construction industry. More than 1,000 exhibitors and over 19,000 registered attendees from more than 65 countries worldwide attended.
In keeping with “The Demo Expo” theme, NCCCO’s Lift Safety Zone featured hands-on demonstrations of NCCCO’s internationally accredited (ANSI/ISO) and OSHA-recognized personnel certification exams. Qualified attendees had an opportunity to try their hands on the service truck crane’s controls to test their skills on a demonstration CCO practical exam course.
CCO written and recertification exam administrations for those seeking to become CCO-certified or renew their certifications in most NCCCO programs were also available.
The next ICUEE will be held Sept. 28-30, 2021, returning to Louisville and the Kentucky Exposition Center.
