February 2015—NCCCO’s ANSI accreditation has been extended to include the CCO Lift Director and CCO Service Truck Crane Operator programs. ANSI’s decision came after thorough analysis of test data and rigorous audits of NCCCO’s management systems and psychometric procedures, as well as detailed scrutiny of its test development and administrative processes, said NCCCO Director of Operations and Program Development, Joel Oliva.
“This means these two programs, both of which were introduced in 2013, are now accredited by ANSI to the ISO/IEC 17024 International Standard for organizations that certify personnel,” Oliva said.
“ANSI and ISO provide the most rigorous accreditations available,” said NCCCO Commission Chairman Ellis Vliet. “Candidates and employers alike can now be assured that, with ANSI’s independent verification processes, both CCO Lift Director and Service Truck Crane Operator certifications meet the highest professional standards of examination development and administration.”
