Dedicated Pile Driver Operator Written Exam Now Available via CBT

DPD - Ryan Structural Engineers, LLC-cropped_400xNovember 23, 2020—NCCCO’s Dedicated Pile Drive Operator written certification exam has recently been made available via computer-based testing (CBT). The test is identical in content to the paper-and-pencil version.

CBT allows for quicker scheduling and instant results. More than 400 CBT locations nationwide are available for candidates eager to earn the CCO-certified Dedicated Pile Driver Operator credential.

NCCCO developed the Dedicated Pile Driver Operator certification program—launched in January 2017—in cooperation with the Pile Driving Contractors Association (PDCA). A task force of subject matter experts representing operators, users, owners, manufacturers, trainers, and other stakeholders developed the written and practical examinations that individuals must pass to become certified. Task force members identified the knowledge areas and tasks necessary for safe pile driver operation. Using sound psychometric principles and the very best practices of test development they developed examinations that are fair, valid, reliable, and legally defensible.
